Nectar Group is proud to integrate our social values initiatives throughout our global operations, with increased enthusiasm as we mark our 50th anniversary.
Nectar Group plays an active role in the communities in which we operate, helping to deliver social value commitments not only for ourselves, but also for our customers. Our global colleagues are encouraged to work with us to support local causes, care of the environment, volunteer and make a difference.
We are pleased to share another great initiative from our teams in Nectar Mozambique and Nectar Coal Handling Mozambique, supporting the non-profit organisation OREBACOM. This community-based rehabilitation association has been working since 2008 to support people with disabilities in seven communities across the city of Beira. This far-reaching organisation has assisted over 923 individuals; as well as providing vital education, training, early identification and intervention within schools and local communities, family support, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, inclusive playgroups, and much more.
“I found it very humbling to meet and listen to the stories of the volunteers and beneficiaries of the work of OREBACOM. I am very pleased and proud Nectar has decided to mark our 50th Anniversary by supporting the remarkable and life-changing work of OREBACOM in Mozambique, by donating much needed equipment to improve the quality of life and to assist with the rehabilitation of many children and adults with disabilities in the local community in Beira.”Nectar Group Managing Director, Chris Boughton commented
