Wessex Recycling, in partnership with the Navti Foundation, has provided 10 tonnes of hygiene products, including rubber gloves and hair and feet covers, for use by rural communities of Cameroon, Africa.
James Butcher, commercial director of the Bridgwater-based plastics recycler, said: “We are pleased to be able to support the Navti Foundation. At Wessex Recycling one of our core values is to give something back and it is particularly rewarding to be able to make an immediate difference to the lives of the underprivileged people in Cameroon.”
“People are sick in Africa because conditions are not hygienic,” added Shudzeka Jean Louis Bimela, president of the Navti Foundation. “If we can give them gloves to be more hygienic, it shall help reduce death rate and improve general health care.
“I can't be more excited and grateful to your whole team for this wonderful support, stay well and thanks again for your support to poor communities in Cameroon who shall benefit from your gift.”
