PPC has recently donated 150 bags of cement to and assistance in the renovation of a home for elderly women in Naaupoort village in the North West province.

The donation was made in partnership with the Departments of Women and Children and Correctional Services respectively. It not only uplifted the local community but enabled community service activities for prisoners from the area ensuring skills transfer.

The donation ceremony was attended by the Honourable Minister of Women and Children in the Presidency Susan Shabangu and community leaders.

Leanne Williams, CSI Committee head at PPC Slurry, was present at the event to hand over the cement needed for work on the home: “PPC is proud to be part of this project and hopes to continue making a change in the community. We recognise the need to support these ladies – many of whom now act as guardians to children in the community while their parents work elsewhere.”

Williams noted that the project is ongoing, and that PPC hopes to continue its partnership with the two departments to assist communities in other areas in the North West – which is home to one of its biggest cement plants, PPC Slurry.
