AIDS Haven in Port Elizabeth afFORDed

www.MyPE.co.za:
Thousands of Ford Motor Company employees from around the globe joined
hands in September for the fourth annual Ford Global Week of Caring.
From 5 to 12 September 190 employees of Ford Motor Company of Southern
Africa (FMCSA) worked an accumulated 1 016 hours helping different
charities and projects in South Africa.

Volunteers from both the Silverton Plant in Pretoria and the Struandale
Plant in Port Elizabeth ventured into their communities to renovate
shelters, feed the hungry and offer their support.

This is the fourth annual installment of this worldwide event, which is
aimed at building Ford employee participation, involvement and support
of the communities in which they live and work.

“Ford’s Global Week of Caring is a fantastic initiative,” says FMCSA,
President & CEO: Hal Feder, “It’s a global undertaking and we
are very proud to be part of it. We rely heavily on the community in
both our Silverton and Struandale plants, we therefore have a vested
interest in improving the circumstances of our community members.
Through building better communities we are able to build better cars.”

This year’s week long campaign started off with the sale of Casual Day
stickers to the staff on Friday 4 September. A total of 200 stickers
were sold with the proceeds from the sale going to the Medicos Special
School based in Soshanguve, a school for children with mental
disabilities.

While donations provided a much needed boost for the various charities
it was the volunteer work undertaken by the Ford employees that really
had an impact on the communities.

Maintenance work was carried out at the Eesterust Secondary School in
Eesterust; the Le Amogetswe Safe Home in Atteridgeville and the
L’Phumilanga AIDS Haven in Port Elizabeth.

L'Phumilanga AIDS Haven in Port ElizabethA team of 19 Ford
volunteers from the Struandale
Engine Plant
visited the Laphum’ilanga AIDS Haven in Port
Elizabeth. As the home to some 27 children abandoned or orphaned as a
result of HIV and AIDS the facility provides an important social
service and relies purely on donations for survival.

The Ford staff tackled an exhaustive makeover that saw them fixing
broken windows, replacing ceiling boards, painting and mending damaged
beds. While the renovations were taking place the children were
relocated to the Engine Plant communications centre. There they were
treated to fun and games, along with a delightful plate of eats and
treats under the care of the Struandale Engine Plant Wellness Team – an
effort that brought an incredible amount of joy and excitement to their
otherwise strained existence.

“I would personally like to thank all of the FMCSA staff that
participated in this year’s event and made a difference in the lives of
so many less fortunate than ourselves. While the Ford Global Week of
Caring allows the staff to get involved with the community for a week,
Ford’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives are ongoing
throughout the year and we hope to continue to contribute so valuably
to our society for many years to come,” said Feder.
