“As a proudly South African company, Kia South Africa firmly believes children are the future of our beautiful country. We are therefore proud to help provide opportunities for them to flourish and succeed, and thank the Beeld Children’s Fund for allowing us to affect the lives of these kids in meaningful ways,” says Gary Scott, CEO of Kia South Africa.
The Beeld Children’s Fund was founded in 1977 and strives to assist children in need by focusing on programmes that aid the development of body, soul and spirit. It is a registered non-profit organisation and public benefit organisation. This year, the fund aims to make a difference to the lives of at least 6,500 children.
“These programmes serve the needs of a wide variety of vulnerable children,” explains Adrie van Staden, executive officer of the Beeld Children’s Fund. “It allows us to assist traumatised children in obtaining therapy, and for children from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend kindergartens and pre-schools. It also allows us to help homeless youth to obtain care and accommodation, and to complete their schooling.”
Apart from the grand prize of a KIA Picanto Start, there are also a number of other bonus prizes on offer.
Winning is easy: for every donation of R30, donors receive one entry into the raffle.
