Kia puts wheels under SA Covid aid distribution

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Kia SA has given three K2700 bakkies and three Picanto Start cars to the SA National Zakah Fund to help it to deliver food and welfare support services to vulnerable communities during the Covid-19 ”lockdown”.

The bakkies will be equipped with lockable Beekman Canopies.

Gary Scott, Kia SA’s CEO, told The Corner in a media release: “SANZAF has achieved this for the past 45 years and these vehicles will make easier this current task.”

The fund says it is a socio-welfare educational organisation that facilitates the empowerment of needy families through efficient collection and distribution of alms (Zakah) and donations.
