RICOH AND TLC TEAM UP FOR NANDOS NEKNOMINATION

872

Ricoh South Africa recently responded to a NekNomination issued by Nando’s when it again assisted The Love of Christ (TLC) Ministries in its drive to care for orphaned and abandoned babies.
 
Ricoh SA has assisted TLC in various ways for the past 15 years and this time helped the organisation’s people to create a necessary water pipeline required to feed cattle and security horses that are helping TLC to become self-sufficient.
 
Dierdre Fernandes, head of marketing communications and corporate social marketing at Ricoh SA said, ‘TLC does not want to be an ongoing burden to the community so it embarked on a programme to become more self-reliant. TLC operates a farm south of Johannesburg and the recent pipeline to carry water to cattle and horses will help them to achieve that goal and complements their dairy with milking facility, chicken runs, sheep and goat paddocks, and the vegetable garden.’
 
‘We wanted to make a difference in their lives but also to ensure that this was a lasting impact,’ says Esti Kilian, national head of marketing services and corporate social marketing at Ricoh SA. ‘TLC enjoys the support of some organisations that donate consumable items but is always short of funds and materials for projects that elicit sustainable change.’
 
15 Ricoh SA employees dug a trench for TLC and assisted in laying the water pipe. It was a small but extremely necessary act to ensure that TLC can minimise overheads and maximise returns from its small but highly dedicated staff as it provides for the needs of more than 30 infants to three years old.
