GIBB lends a helping hand to the elderly at Refilwe

Eleven young engineers from GIBB warmed the hearts of the elderly community at Refilwe, assisting them with much needed food parcels containing non-perishable items and blankets, providing some comfort in light of a frigid winter season. This gesture adds to the extensive work been done through the Refilwe Community Project, and GIBB’s commitment to making a difference in marginalised and needy communities in South Africa.

“Changing the lives of people is at the centre of everything we do at GIBB, and our involvement with Refilwe grew significantly over the years. With the tough winter season still ahead, we hope that our contribution adds value to those in need,” said Yolande van Rooyen, GIBB Marketing Practitioner: Events Management, CRM  and CSI.

The Refilwe Community Project, rooted in Lanseria, North of Johannesburg is an initiative that was founded in 1991 and is aimed at providing child care, uplifting and developing the community and improving the skills of its residents though education and mentorship.

GIBB is a leading multi-disciplinary engineering consulting firm based in Sunninghill, Johannesburg with a strong corporate social interest.
