Company helps feeding scheme

UPLIFTMENT: Terra Serena Ministries Pastor Fernando Laranjeira with Cartrack SA CEO, Andre Ittmann.

FLEET management, stolen vehicle recovery and insurance telematics services company Cartrack recently demonstrated its commitment to community upliftment and environmental sustainability when it planted a sustainable vegetable garden at Terra Serena Ministries in Kibler Park on July 29.

The day’s outing formed part of Cartrack’s Mandela Month and Arbour Week commemorations, and was initiated in support of feeding schemes at orphanages in the surrounding community. The company’s employees planted fruit trees and vegetable seeds, and installed a water irrigation system to ensure that the vegetable garden remains a sustainable project.

Cartrack SA CEO, Andre Ittmann, said the company chose to support Terra Serena Ministries owing to its ability to reach a large portion of the local community.

“Our intention was to support a cause that could make an impactful and real difference to a community in need, and there’s no doubt that Terra Serena Ministries fulfills this goal, as their established roots in the community and charitable networks have the potential to foster a positive and lasting legacy.

“The initiative we established with them will prove to be particularly beneficial for the local community, as the sustainable garden will not only ensure that vulnerable children are nourished and well-fed, but will also contribute decisively towards the environment with a sustainable garden. We are delighted that we were able to participate in this day and continue our drive to be a responsible corporate citizen,” explained Andre.

Terra Serena’s Pastor Fernando Laranjeira said that the ministry aims to support the most vulnerable members of the community by attending to their basic needs.

“We run a number of feeding schemes in the South of Johannesburg, and without sponsors it makes it challenging to sustain these projects. We are grateful to Cartrack for investing in and supporting this project, which will supply us with food produce that can be used well into the future,” he said.
