Engen contributes further to fighting COVID-19, pledging R1m to FoodForward SA
Speaking following the official cheque handover in Cape Town, Khalid Latiff, Engen’s general manager: corporate strategy and communications, commended FoodForward SA for the incredible work they do addressing widespread hunger and food insecurity in South Africa.
“As Engen, we are humbled to partner with FoodForward SA, who have escalated their already impressive food aid efforts following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and national lockdown restrictions,” said Latiff, “and we hope our fuel contribution will ensure FoodForward SA’s transport fleet reaches a broader spectrum of vulnerable communities across the length and breadth of the country.”
Andy du Plessis, managing director of FoodForward SA, hailed the generous fuel contribution by Engen, which will ensure many more impoverished households receive food provisions. “Thank you to Engen for your generosity and for caring enough to make a real difference.”
