General Motor staff donate water
PORT ELIZABETH — Employees at General Motors South Africa ( GMSA) recently joined the nationwide campaign to donate water to people living in droughtstricken areas.
When the request to donate water was sent out to employees they immediately took up the challenge to assist.
A total of 1 511 litres of water were collected, in from one- to five- litre bottles. The water was dispatched to the Barkley East and Rhodes in the Eastern Cape.
According to Gishma Johnson, GMSA corporate communications manager, actions like these are often initiated by employees. In this case, employee at the Struandale plant, Rene Mostert, responded to the Operation Hydrate campaign and arranged for transport to deliver the water to the relevant areas. “Our employees subscribe to the company’s “We give back” ethos and are always enthusiastic to react to the call for assistance.”
