Donation on Nelson Mandela International Day

July 18, 2017

  • Community support

On July 18th, known as the Nelson Mandela International Day, Johannesburg Office of Hitachi Europe Ltd. and Hitachi Data Systems respectively made 10,000 ZAR worth of donations to the Midrand Child and Family Care Association, an orphanage home to children between the ages of three months to 12 years old. Each of the companies bought toys, blankets, clothes and stationeries of 10,000 ZAR, and nine employees from the companies visited the orphanage to meet the children and deliver the gifts together. During the visit, the employees enjoyed interacting with the children and learning about the association. They also later received a letter of gratitude from the orphanage.
The Nelson Mandela International Day encourages individuals all around the world to take action for their communities and devote at least 67 minutes of their time for helping others, respecting the 67 years of Mr. Mandela’s life devoted to fight for human rights and social justice. It was the first time for Hitachi Europe’s Johannesburg Office and Hitachi Data Systems collaboratively work together for the Nelson Mandela International Day.
