ROODEPLAAT ORPHAN AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN CARE CENTRE

This year Bras Trucking decided to bring it closer to home, reaching into the neighbouring community of Kameeldrift East. In the spirit of Nelson Mandela day company, Bras Trucking joined hands with Bras Parts, Isiphiwo Boutique Hotel and the precious mud-streaked palms of the Roodeplaat Orphan and Vulnerable Children Care Centre. (This remarkable community centre provides lunch and homework supervision on a daily basis to 250 children from the underprivileged community of Kameeldrift East).

The Bras Trucking staff played games and kept the soft serve machine working overtime. In addition to providing 250 food parcels, the maintenance team repaired leaking taps, painted walls and tended to the general wear and tear of the property. With so many hungry little mouths to feed, the Roodeplaat Orphan and Vulnerable Children Care Centre was blessed with a stocked fridge and new cooking supplies at the end of the day. As is always the case, however, far more was gained from the children that day than what was given.

TLC OLD AGE HOME

For the past five years Bras Trucking and Oasis Revival church have played their part in the transformation story of the TLC Old Age Home of Hammanskraal.

Their financial and physical involvement saw the construction of new bathrooms, the renovation of sleeping quarters and, most recently, the addition of an eating hall. These significant improvements to the facilities over the years have been cause to celebrate, as local government, NGOs, and businessmen came together to acknowledge this small and victorious step forward for the community.

Given that many staff members reside in Hammanskraal, Bras Trucking found this partnership with TLC Old Age Home to be a perfect way to serve and give back to their own people. Fueled by a sense of social responsibility and a passion for community upliftment, their contribution has added a piece to the patchwork of positive stories weaving throughout South Africa.
