Making a real difference

Issued by: Compex | 2 Apr 2014 12:34
In South Africa, Corporate Social Investment (CSI) often plays a pivotal role in the lives of many individuals. The impact of any CSI programme should never be under-estimated, and as the social needs of our country and population are substantial, it is a moral duty for businesses of any size to make a difference to society and the communities in which they operate.
Traditionally the end of the year is synonymous for gift-giving, and through the support of our clients, staff and suppliers, Compex was once again able to make a significant change in the lives of four special people by giving the gift of sight and mobility respectively. At the end of 2014, the Compex team, donated wheelchairs to two individuals; and sponsored cataract operations for another two individuals.

For the individuals involved in the project, both the recipients and those from Compex, the experience of making a real difference is both deeply empowering and emotional. Nigel Walker, Director and founder of Compex, said, "The impact of such focused interventions is immediate and very humbling; you begin to understand the significance you can play in changing the way another person experiences the world."

I heartily agree: it's the responsibility of every citizen to play a part, no matter how small, in improving the lives of other less advantaged, less educated, less healthy.
I am setting up a volunteer project for Pietermaritzburg & District Community Chest to encourage a culture of volunteerism called Giving to Grow.
If you have any influence, I'd appreciate it if you could consider this wonderful organisation that in this area alone supports 76 projects and impacts the lives of 25 people every hour of every day of the year. Thank you
