Donation on Nelson Mandela International Day
July 18, 2018
Celebrating the Nelson Mandela International Day on July 18th, six of the employees of the Johannesburg office of Hitachi Europe Ltd. and seven of Hitachi Vantara visited Kids Haven, a child and youth care center, to bring gifts to the children living in the center. Both companies respectively made 10,000 ZAR worth of donations, which included mattresses, kitchen appliances and groceries to the care center taking care of about 150 boys and girls at the age of 3 to 24, who would be at risk if they stayed in their community. The 13 Hitachi volunteers enjoyed a tour in the center and playing with the children.
The Nelson Mandela International Day encourages individuals all around the world to devote at least 67 minutes of their time for helping others and communities, respecting the 67 years of Mr. Mandela’s life devoted to fight for human rights and social justice. Last year, the Johannesburg Office and Hitachi Vantara made donations to an orphanage and paid a visit together.
