Municipality’s Social Market

 

Company collects food and essential items in view of Easter time

 

Limassol, Cyprus, 5 April 2018: DP World Limassol, the Multipurpose Terminal Operator at Limassol port, contributed to Limassol’s Social Market in support of efforts by the town’s municipality to ensure that less homes go without necessary essentials during the Easter period.

More specifically, the company carried out a collection of foodstuffs and necessary essentials at Limassol port over a period of month. Embracing the initiative with enthusiasm, DP World Limassol employees collected tinned food, cereals, biscuits, baby food and other essential items. As part of its support for the Social Market and promotion of local activities, the company also participated in the Limassol Marathon 5km Corporate Race on Saturday, 17 March 2018

DP World Limassol General Manager Charles Meaby highlighted the importance of contributing to society and volunteerism by commenting “Sustainability is integral to DP World’s philosophy and this is reflected in the Group’s actions worldwide. Our basic aim at DP World Limassol is to bolster local communities, which is why we chose to support the efforts of the Social Market of Limassol Municipality”.

Mr Meaby underlined that no table should be without food, not only during the Easter holiday period, but every day and added “The response of the DP World Limassol family in aligning our support to the needs of local communities enables us to make a positive impact and establish long-term partnerships”.

DP World Limassol implements a multifaceted programme of sustainability which hinges on support of vulnerable groups, the protection of the environment and the promotion and women empowerment.
