Lloyd's Brazil Christmas CSR Initiative
Over the 2018 Christams period Lloyd's Brazil develped two initiatives in Rio de Janeiro
Donation of retired desktop computers & IT equipment
Lloyd’s Brazil donated six complete desktop computers, phased-out during the IT migration to laptops in October 2018. One of the computers was donated to the Lloyd’s Brazil office cleaner to be used for educational purposes by the family, including children of the age of 8, 12 and 18-year-old. The other five desktop computers, were donated to a local public school - Shakespeare, which will use them to enhance the children learning experience. Estimated value of the donations is: BRL 6.000 (GBP 1.250)
Lloyd’s Brazil Christmas Networking CSR Initiative
During Lloyd's Brazil Christmas Networking Party, all guests were invited to bring unperishable food / essential care items, or to make a financial contribution to buy these items to be donated to a local church and distributed to shelter less people in the City of Rio de Janeiro. I order to maximize the donations Lloyd’s Brazil also promoted a prize draw of Lloyd’s branded gifts for guests who contributed to our initiative. Lloyd’s Brazil gathered around BRL 2.000 (GBP 400) from the guests’ contributions which was used to build 24 family kits with unperishable food and essential care items. The baskets were donated to a nearby church “Santo Antonio dos Pobres” who provides assistance to 250 homeless families in the vicinity of our office.
