Press release from: Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park

The “Helping Africa” charity drive, first phase of which, a phase for the collection of material donations, came to an end on May 25th, 2011 was supported by a number of prominent companies, charity organizations as well as individuals. Employees of Colgate-Palmolive s.r.o. have decided in May 2011 to organize an internal collection of clothing for the children of Mozambique. Their donations will be shipped along with other material donations collected in the 1st phase of this charity drive to Mozambique, Africa at the start of June 2011.

The second deadline for the charity drive is September 25th, 2011. The “Helping Africa” drive can also be supported in other ways, for example by getting involved in certain programs or by financing specific development projects of the Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park.

Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park supports development of the Mozambican residents

The “Helping Africa” drive is organized by the Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park to support the improvement of the dismal conditions of the population living on its territory. The objective of the Helping Africa event is to support the communities living in the area of the border national park, the Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park, who live there in dismal conditions and thereby help their future development. The donations received in the first phase of the Helping Africa drive (concluded on May 25th, 2011) will be shipped at the start of June 2011 directly to Mozambique, Africa where the representatives of the Gonarezhou Transfrontier Park will pass them out into the hands of the responsible representatives of the local authorities and educational or healthcare facilities.

The Helping Africa drive is supported by prominent organizations, schools and individuals

A number of prominent European organizations decided to support the Helping Africa charity drive, which is organized in the Czech Republic since January 2011 to help the children and their families in Mozambique, Africa. Among these are such companies as the BMW Invelt, Diakonie Broumov, Česká charita, Arcidiecézní charita Praha - Sv. Terezie or EFEKTIM. The drive was also supported by a number of schools and kindergartens Neverland Kindergarten and Nursery, Waldorf Kindergarten, Our Suberine Kindergarten and a number of other schools and kindergartens and organizations, but also individuals.

The employees at Colgate-Palmolive have also decided to organize their internal collection and thereby support the Helping Africa project with their own efforts.

“Our company supports the participation of our employees at charitable events. Colgate-Palmolive participates in projects supporting the development of local communities all around the world. We focus mainly on helping young people and children. Our motto is that an investment in children today, will be of benefit to all of us tomorrow.” states Helena Pazderková of Colgate-Palmolive, the internal drive coordinator.

Another integral activity of this park is a sensitive, sustainable and long term development of local communities. Park activities focus on the construction of schools, hospitals, healthcare facilities, water reservoirs or the development of local infrastructure.
