Main aim of the charity
Providing household goods to the migrants and the poor and needy
How the employee got involved and why
I received a WhatsApp message from a friend asking for household goods for a Sri Lankan migrant. I then visited this family and was deeply moved by the condition they lived. There were no sofa set, fridge, cupboards, dining table, and TV. I realized that they did not have money to buy these things and so I had the idea of starting this project of getting from those who wanted to give away their items and giving it to those who need it most
What work does the employee do for charity?
Basically, I collect the items from the donors and then arrange the transport and source for the manpower to do the job. It is rather difficult to get FOC transport and so I normally ask around and most of the time my brother, Louis who is running a convenient shop provides his truck and I get my son, Joshua to follow me. I normally send this request to all my friends, relations and family members and I get the things from individuals. In fact I always receive more than what I asked for and therefore I started informing my contacts to see if anyone wanted household goods surplus. I started receiving a lot of requests. I saw a need for to serve such people and I became the contact point for both those who wanted to give away their items and those who were in need. And so, I am doing this charity for the past two years.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
I am only doing this submission to create an awareness to all our DHL employees that we can bring new life to any individual. I want people to learn to sacrifice their leisure time to bring new life to all poor and needy people, if not all but at least one person. I want to extend this assistance to those who got no money to further their studies. It would be a great help if we can look into this matter. It will also be a great if I can have a place to store these household goods so that I can send quickly as and when there is a need
What impact would winning have on the employee?
I can touch people to follow my footsteps and extend this charity works to many more migrants and poor people who are in desperate need to live a quality life. I can create a network to so that we can cover many more migrants and poor people who don't have basic things in their house
