THREE additional local organisations have received funding towards furthering the good work they do in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro.

The Volkswagen for Good Initiative handed over cheques to the value of R506 600 to Young Entrepreneurs Foundation, Port Elizabeth Mental Health Society and St Francis Hospice, bringing the total amount disbursed by Volkswagen in 2017 to local charities and NPOs to just over R2.8 million.

Each organisation will receive a portion of the donation from Volkswagen.

The Young Entrepreneurs Foundation (YE) teaches children vital entrepreneurial and financial literacy skills. One of their goals is to inspire youth and change their lives.

The PE Mental Health Society has been in existence since 1939 and renders a holistic service to people with disabilities and psychiatric illnesses. Their programmes and workshops help decrease the levels of vulnerability and marginalisation with which people with disabilities live.

The St Francis Hospice was established in 1986 as a faith-based palliative care hospice. They provide a holistic service of palliative care to short life expectancy patients by filling the gap in terminal service care through the offer of medical and nursing care as well as psychosocial support.

“I am proud that VWSA through the Volkswagen for Good initiative is able to play a part in the difference that these organisations make in the lives of the residents of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro,” said Thomas Schaefer, Volkswagen Group South Africa Chairman and Managing Director.
