TENDY Three Investments (TTI), the company that is in partnership with the City of Bulawayo to manage the city’s parking system on Tuesday donated an assortment of groceries thousands of dollars to 1 200 households made up of the elderly, persons with disabilities and the less privileged in Bulawayo.
The donation was part of the company’s effort to give back to the community and recognise continued support by clients.
TTI managing director Bongani Nyathi and executive chairman Lizwe Mabuza led the donation of the foodstuffs which included mealie-meal, cooking oil, flour, sugar beans and Kapenta.
In his speech, Mabuza said the donation was part of the company’s social responsibility that aims to transform people’s lives through various initiatives aimed at the disadvantaged.
“This is part of our corporate social responsibility as TTI and the donation is meant to assist and to alleviate the plight of the less privileged members of the society. The initiative came after we realized that there are a number of households with the elderly and those with disabilities and that it was important to reach out to them.
“The donation also shows that we are identifying ourselves with people in Bulawayo, we love and respect them and we want to see Bulawayo developing.
“TTI is a local company not a South African Company as is being said by other people. Also as part of our corporate social responsibility we are paying fees for some university students,” said Mabuza.
In his acceptance speech Bulawayo mayor councilor Solomon Mguni applauded the company and commended its role in ensuring that the elderly and less privileged should be taken care of.
“I want to express my gratitude to TTI for assisting the needy during this difficult time. We are truly grateful for the generous gesture which will go a long way in bringing a smile to the elderly and less privileged. They have brightened their day. I’m also encouraging other corporations and individuals to follow suit and assist the disadvantaged.” said Cllr Mguni.
One of the beneficiaries, Benjamin Moyo (60) from Makokoba suburb thanked the company for the gesture.
“I want to thank the company for remembering us during our time of need and just hope they continue doing the great work,” said Moyo.
