SNC-Lavalin rises against hunger
On the 27th June 2018 SNC-Lavalin hosted a meal packaging event at our Johannesburg, Secunda and Vanderbiljpark offices in South Africa leading up to Mandela Day which is held on the 18th July each year.
In collaboration with Rise Against Hunger Africa, and in the spirit of Nelson Mandela’s legacy, colleagues dedicated their time by volunteering to pack the meals and meet our target of packaging 27,500 meals in sixty-seven minutes. A percentage of the meals packaged were distributed to chosen beneficiaries in Goven Mbeki community on 18th July 2018.
Rise Against Hunger is non-profit organisation that was founded in 1998 by Ray Buchanan — a United Methodist minister, with the aim to end hunger by the year 2030 #RISE2030. They work to achieve this by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable people. Creating a global commitment to mobilise the necessary resources.
