Ardagh supports local families in Brazil
At Ardagh, we believe in the importance of giving back to the communities in which we operate. Our teams in Alagoinhas, Jacarei, and Manaus, Brazil work in collaboration with The Internal Commission of Accident Prevention (CIPA) to support local families in these communities. During 2019, our team in Brazil created a programme of activities to support Work Accident Prevention Week.
Our team in Manaus donated nearly one tonne of food to Children’s House, a charity dedicated to giving access to early childhood education and day care to children from low income families. The Manaus team also donated infant formula and essential baby care items to Nacer Shelter, which protects children who suffer from abuse and neglect.
Meanwhile, the team in Jacarei organised a toy collection for Meia Lua Nursery, Lar São José das Irmãs Carmelitas and Guri na Roça who support more than 400 children between the ages of 1 to 15 to ensure they receive a good start in life.
Our team in Alagoinhas donated essential school supply kits to more than 100 children in need from Dom Avelar School.
