LC Packaging’s Green Heart Campaign 2020 has raised over €2,350,- for three projects supported by the LC Supports Foundation. As a gift for the Holidays, customers were introduced to two projects supported by the LC Supports Foundation. Customers could then choose the project closest to his or her heart. In return, LC Packaging donated an amount of money to this project. All three projects have enthusiastically received their donations and made big plans.
The Sri Lankan Hope for Children Foundation has announced that it is extremely happy with the donation of €1,200. With this donation they can support more than 175 families who lost their already limited income due to Covid-19. They will be brought a care package with essential clothing like underwear, vests, skirts and socks and a food parcel.
Together with our local partner Grambangla and ChildHope UK, we developed a skills development programme for the waste pickers in Dhaka, after which they are offered a job at our SA 8000 certified production location: Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. To keep students and their families as safe as possible, awareness sessions on Covid-19 and occupational health and safety will be organised with the €650 donation.
Contributing to female economic empowerment in Bangladesh, FIBC manufacturer Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. (DBPL) has set up Happy Kids, a day-care centre that offers a safe, playful and educational environment for the children of its factory workers. Free of charge! To provide an even more enjoyable environment for the children, Happy Kids will use the €500 donation to help finance an air cooler unit to battle hot summer days.
