Kintetsu World Express understands the concept of paying it forward.
As an international logistics company, they do not deliver on half measures when it comes to investing in their local communities.
And this year was no different. Arend du Preez, Managing Director of KWE SA explains: "our head office is based in Kempton Park. For the past 13 years, we have tasked our staff to identify community projects where KWE could play a meaningful and sustainable role. This cuts across all the regions where we have operation facilities, such as KZN, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town."
"Whilst it is the Season for festivities and celebration, we are humbled by the plight of thousands of families and individuals in their daily struggle to find warm, safe housing - to start each day on the back foot not knowing where or when the next piece job of warm meal will come from or how to protect and keep their loved ones safe. When you look into the eyes of the helpless and witness their waning hope, one cannot be left untouched by their utter despair. We urge other corporate companies to immerse themselves in projects, where goodwill to mankind and the environment can become a reality in our country" he continues.
On Friday, 10 December 2010, KWE staff members delivered gifts and fresh food packs to the Angel Wings Care Centre in Putfontein, Benoni. This brought joy to the more than 86 households, disabled, abused women and men, and other disadvantaged individuals who are currently cared for at the centre.
