67000 litres for Mandela Day –  Chefs with Compassion and SA Harvest

67000 litres for Mandela Day – Chefs with Compassion and SA Harvest

67 000 litres of soup goes a long way. It provides nourishment to 268 000 people for one day.

In honour of Madiba, chefs around the country are uniting with Chefs with Compassion and SA Harvest, two food rescue organisations, to cook with compassion for the most vulnerable in our communities.

You can support their goal of eliminating hunger in the months to come by donating R10 per cup of soup to Chefs with Compassion.  That’s half a cappuccino or a nourishing cup of soup for a hungry person.

SAIPA and Hot Cares assist Green Door Women’s Shelter in Diepsloot

SAIPA and Hot Cares assist Green Door Women’s Shelter in Diepsloot

The rise in cases of violence directed at women and children, especially during the Covid-19 lockdown is alarming. Hot Cares got in touch with Green Door, an emergency shelter in Diepsloot for victims of domestic and sexual abuse to find out how we could assist those who are most vulnerable.  Green Door offers victims a safe and secure environment, basic emotional containment, referrals and assistance, care packs, blankets and clothing.

Thankfully,  The South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA) have generously donated R17 000 towards the fight against gender based violence, which Hot Cares will be using to purchase the much needed care packs for Green Door.

 

“The South African Institute of Professional Accountants, SAIPA for short, is humbled to be able to assist Green Door at this time. We admire the much-needed work they do in caring for women and children of abuse and are privileged that we can contribute to their cause in some small way. SAIPA, as an institution, actively advocates and promotes ethical and responsible behaviour within the profession in order to retain public trust and confidence. As professionals, we all have a duty to support moves to build a more ethical society, and to embody those ethics in the way we conduct our business and private lives.”

 

About SAIPA

The South African Institute of Professional Accountants is a leading professional body for accountants and tax practitioners who perform all accounting and tax related duties except external auditing. The Institute offers several professional designations that assure the public of our members technical and practical competence and commitment to ethical practices.

Fiona Wilson – A loved and valued member of the Hot 91.9 FM family

Fiona Wilson is a loyal Hot 91.9 FM listener and a consistent donor of our Hot Cares community upliftment initiative. She always emails us her proof of payments and through our email exchanges we have gotten to know Fiona without even having met her in person! We were upset to hear that she was recently retrenched and is facing a number of difficulties.

Fiona is a selfless, kind-hearted and wonderful woman we have grown to admire, love and cherish. The Hot Cares team would like to thank her, for her continued support over the years and now it is our turn to be there for her during these difficult times.  Hot Cares will be donating R5000 towards Fiona’s expenses this month. 

Hot 91.9 FM delighted to announce that Gallant Business Solutions is the first SME to Get a Share of R100 Million in the Get SA Working Initiative!

Hot 91.9 FM delighted to announce that Gallant Business Solutions is the first SME to Get a Share of R100 Million in the Get SA Working Initiative!

 Hot 91.9 FM in partnership with ProfitShare Partners earlier this week announced the first SME to get their share of R100 Million through the Get SA Working SME Growth Initiative. Congratulations Andries Leboho, Director of Gallant Business Solutions!

 

Launched in 2014, Gallant Business Solutions entered the market with a focus on the petroleum sector. In 2015, the SME applied for a petroleum wholesale license and once the company received their license, they soon realised that the industry was very hard to penetrate. To keep the company afloat, they pursued business with government in 2016, however this proved to be challenging too due to the many suppliers and delays in payments in some departments – nevertheless, Gallant Business Solutions managed to survive.

 

“The only issue that has been a challenge all along [was] financing of the purchase orders, however, we believe that is a thing of the past since discovering ProfitShare Partners through the Hot 91.9FM campaign,” said Andries Leboho.

 

“As part of our Get SA Working SME growth initiative, we’re proud to that we could partner with another SME to realise success! Congratulations, Gallant Business Solutions! Here’s to many more successes in the future,” said CEO and founder of ProfitShare Partners, Andrew Maren.

 

Lloyd Madurai, managing director of Hot 91.9 FM adds, “This is what Hot 91.9FM is all about, making sure that we can keep SMEs in business and that is why we are a proud partner in this ProfitShare Partners campaign”.
