Printer goes a long way for children's home
DEVELOP South Africa, a wholly owned Bidvest company, recently donated a multifunctional printer (MFP), with its maintenance service included, to The Love of Christ Children's Home (TLC), based in Eikenhof, south of Johannesburg. The DEVELOP South Africa team visited the orphanage to hand over the device, and also to deliver some delicious goodies for the kids.
Established by the Jarvis family in 1993, TLC's mission is to care for any baby that has been abandoned or orphaned. The organisation believes every child has the right to a loving family, and it is committed to finding a home for all the children in its care. TLC both employs permanent staff and relies on volunteers who assist in the education and supervision of the children in its care
Since its inception, the orphanage has cared for and enabled the placement of over 800 babies through adoption, and some - although only a small number - have even been reunited with their biological parents. Not only that, but the Jarvis family has adopted 19 of those children who were not placed in adoptive homes.
"DEVELOP South Africa was eager to support TLC's wonderful work within the community in any way possible. We were able to provide the orphanage with an ineo + 452, an all-round colour MFP, that offers quality print-outs, is cost-effective to own and fits seamlessly into any workflow, as it is designed for convenience," says Marc Pillay, CEO at DEVELOP South Africa.
