since 9th APRIL 2021 to date:
A total of 535 donations at our Johannesburg, Cape Town & KZN Offices.
RAINBOW CHILDREN'S VILLAGE
One of our major contributions in giving back to the community has been to Rainbow Children’s Village. This is a non-profit organisation that houses and looks after underprivileged, abused and HIV-positive children. The children range from babies and toddlers to teenagers. Together with the community the children are clothed, fed and educated. A few years ago employees of the company became involved with the organisation and arranged a major renovation of the house. Every month the company contributes to the village's day-to-day needs and the children's education. Besides the regular contributions the company also gets involved in special projects. At the beginning of the year, the company put blinds in the entire house. Our staff takes time out to donate clothes and toys or contribute time and skills to the village. The village ensures that the children have a safe, secure environment to develop into well-balanced adults.
HOPE AGAIN RECOVERY CENTRE
The mission of Hope Again Recovery Centre is to transform society by bringing freedom and hope to people who are trapped in substance abuse, restore broken relationships, equip people for life beyond recovery, empowering them with practical life skills and a life plan to make a positive contribution to society. RLS donated 8 x Nasa surface mount 1200mm and 50 x Starr 2 downlights.
The Blanket and Food Drive run by Charity Fusion in June was an outstanding success and although the blanket target was not reached, it was hugely successful and allowed them to distribute over 300 blankets.
KHOLWANI PRIMARY SCHOOL
Kholwani Primary School in Soweto was the first recipient of a LED lighting system at the time of installation. RLS donated the Lugo 1500mm 35W LED light fitting which was installed in the classrooms at the school, providing 210W with an LED lifespan of over 50 000 hours. Having replaced all fluorescent light fittings with LED’s, a single classroom saved on average 1470W per day, based on seven hours of operation per day. This equated to an energy saving of 294kW per annum, assuming 40 weeks of school in a calendar year. The total monetary savings amounted to approximately R450 per classroom per year. Exterior fittings supplied were the Solo Bulkhead.
