All in the name of a good cause
Corporations have the ability to greatly impact communities and society through donation and proactive engagement. At Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia Pty Ltd (HCA), we recognise and proudly take great measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people at work. To also minimise environmental burden as well as supporting kids in hospital via the Humpty Dumpty Foundation with a minimum of $100,000 planned to be donated in medical equipment per annum for the next three years.
The support provided to the Humpty Dumpty Foundation has HCA regularly participating in charity initiatives to continue raising much needed funds for the cause.
Since 2015, HCA have also supported the Roy Hill Community Foundation, a charity that is now taking significant shape to improve the lives of the indigenous community in the Pilbara region. As a Gold sponsor our commitment is $25,000 per year through to 2019.
In addition during 2018, HCA will introduce three health focus campaigns in an effort to build healthier communities through awareness and support. HCA look forward to supporting three key charities: Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, Beyond Blue and the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation.
These foundations work to minimise three of the population’s largest killers; through medical research and support programs for those affected. Whilst not all cases can be cured, awareness and early intervention can prevent loss of lives.
HCA has committed to sponsoring a minimum of $10,000 to each of these charities in an effort to support research funding and support programs. HCA employees will have the opportunity to make donations at their local branch BBQ’s commemorating the awareness campaigns, of which HCA will match all contributions dollar for dollar.
HCA believes that building a culture of speaking up, sharing information, concerns and being supported by our peers is a critical element of a safe and healthy work and family environment.
We understand that some within HCA may have been affected directly or connected to family or friends that have endured one of these illnesses. We hope that all employees will take part in these activities in some way and that you each embrace and support these campaigns as they are rolled out during the year – it’s as simple as getting involved at the BBQ’s or simply sharing in the vital information to help build a healthier community.
