Century City Conference Centre and Hotels (CCCCH) joined forces with Delta Air Lines and the Amy Foundation to feed 2 400 children and youth from vulnerable communities across Cape Town on two days in July.
The Amy Foundation is a non-profit organisation that offers programmes which develop and empower youngsters, aged 5-35 years from challenged and vulnerable communities.
“We have a long-standing partnership with the Amy Foundation and are always happy to assist in any way that we can. This resilient foundation continues to make a meaningful difference in the lives of its learners through their after-school programmes in townships across the Cape as well as their impactful youth skills development programme based in Sybrand Park. Thank you to Delta for partnering with us on this initiative,” said Gary Koetser, Joint CEO of CCCCH.
“Contributing to the communities where we live, work and serve is part of Delta’s DNA,” said Jimmy Eichelgruen, Director Sales for Africa, the Middle East and India. “We are proud to work alongside the Amy Foundation to give back and help those in need from the townships. Our support in providing meals for young people whose families struggle to put food on the table makes a real difference and helps to ensure they don’t go hungry.”
Amy Foundation MD, Kevin Chaplin, said: “Collaboration and partnership are the backbones of any NPO operating in South Africa. We cannot make the impact that is needed alone. CCCCH and Delta both see the wonderful work that the Amy Foundation is doing, and they support our mission and vision of developing and empowering youth from disadvantaged communities.”
