Land Rover is known for crafting some of the most luxurious and exquisite vehicles in the world today, but did you know that the British automaker is also known for more philanthropic efforts as well? Land Rover recently teamed up with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support to support World Aids Day, and Fred Lavery Company is quite proud of them for it.
The combined efforts of these two entities benefitted more than 7,675 people in South Africa who are either living with HIV or are at risk for it by providing them with nutritious food, prevention messages, information, and emotional support when it's needed. Furthermore, more than 271 individuals who are suffering from HIV were provided with the necessary at-home care that their condition requires.
"We are incredibly grateful for Land Rover's commitment to our work in trying to combat HIV and AIDS. This terrible disease leaves children without parents, people too weak to work and communities without hope," explains Mark Astarita, Director of Fundraising at the British Red Cross. "Land Rover gives us the extra ability to reach even more people and change even more lives."1
Of course, this endeavor isn't merely limited to one day of the year or one region of the world either. The effort also extends to other countries, such as China, where the two companies provide similar aid.
