Covid scourge: Haval dealers ante-up to help children


Haval Motor SA says it is investing in the future not only with cutting-edge products but also research and development

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Haval Motors SA and its seven South African dealers have donated R80 000 to Child Welfare SA to improve the lives and future of less fortunate youngsters.

The business will also aid the organisation into the future.

Haval understands donations to Child Welfare have been severely reduced as Covid is forcast to reduced South Africa’s GDP by at least 10.3% through 2020 and fell by 51% in the second quarter of 2020 – ”the most disastrous economic downturn in recent history”.

A media release from Haval told The Corner: ”Donations received by CWSA were reduced significantly. Haval SA and seven dealers across South Africa responded by donating much-needed funds for sporting goods and school supplies.”
