Rustenburg – During the festive season it’s wonderful to be able to give back to the community and share prosperity. On Tuesday, 13 December 2016, staff members from Sibanye Rustenburg and Kroondal Operations started their day slightly differently…
They loaded 1800 x20 litre buckets, filled with non-perishable foods onto a company truck that went into the local communities surrounding Sibanye’s Kroondal and Rustenburg operations. During the next few days, they distributed these Christmas packages to less fortunate members of the community.
Bheki Khumalo, Sibanye’s senior vice president for human capital, told the Platinum Weekly newspaper, “We are grateful for the opportunity to be able to reach out to our local communities and show compassion during the festive season”.
During the distribution of these care packages, the team realised that the demand was so large that they banded together and arranged another 100 buckets. This brought the total up to 1900 Christmas care packages for less fortunate families.
The buckets are not just filled with essential none perishable foods that will ensure 1900 needy families have enough food to eat during the holiday, but inside every bucket a packet of delicious sweeties for the youngsters are also packed.
