Rectron SA: Helping those with Cerebral Palsy bridge the digital divide

FUTURE-FOCUSED SOCIAL INVESTMENT Recognising how difficult 2020 was for the United Cerebral Palsy Association of South Africa (UCPA), Rectron South Africa donated ICT equipment valued at R171 104 to the organisation. The company believes that “ICT equipment is an enabler, which is why this year we want to give these essential tools to those who need them most”.

The donation was given with the aim of ensuring both short- and long-term empowerment. “We have learned that technology has never been more essential to our daily lives. We as a company have been fortunate to stay connected and ensure business continuity. However, there are millions of people across the country without access to such digital technology who have been left behind as the digital divide within our society deepens – highlighted further through this period.”

Marie van den Berg, Executive Director of the UCPA expressed the organisation’s gratitude: “We would like to convey a very big thank you to you for your donation. Without the accumulative effort of our wonderful sponsors we would not be able to continue our work in helping the children. No one stands so tall as those who bend to help a child.”
