Charity in 2019
As is the custom; Rather than sending gifts to customers and suppliers, Elsteel donates to charity in our efforts to give back to society.
Our major charity project in 2019 was to build a nursery in a rural area in the North Western part of Sri Lanka.
Complete with school books, furniture, toys etc. The nursery holds space for 24 kids that will have a safe and stable start to life.
A few other projects done this year:
- Built a new bridge for a nursery in Galgamuwa, Sri Lanka.
- Built a fence around a nursery playground in Bulathsinhala, so the kids wont fall over the cliff.
- Sponsored a handicapped child for his education and special needs.
Charity in 2017
Elsteel donates a considerable amount to charity projects every year. Amongst several other projects there is one in particular that we are very proud of.
In December 2017 we opened a small nursery in rural Sri Lanka. The area had been damaged by severe floods in June and the village had no funds to re-build the nursery. So with Elsteel organization, funds and manpower we re-built the village nursery.
The building holds up to 15 children aged 3-5 and is completely fitted with everything needed for a safe learning environment.
Fang Logstrup, Managing Director, and her son Sixten were at the grand opening on the 22nd December.
