ALE give weighty charitable contributions
Over the last year, ALE has given thousands in monetary donations or gifts to charities and good causes across the world. ALE has almost 40 branches worldwide and individual branches make their own decisions as to which local causes and charitable organisations they would like to support.
ALE’s Thailand branch has donated two computers, a printer, books, and stationery to a local school in Northern Thailand. Ban Thung Samo School is situated in a village close to where ALE completed the Khao Kho wind farm project. The gift was donated as a thank you to the community as a whole for their patience whilst ALE performed multiple large-cargo convoys passed through its streets during night-time hours.
In South Africa, the Cape Town branch donated a Transcutaneous Bilirubinometer to the Neonatal Ward at the Tygerberg Children’s Hospital. Two ENT sets were also donated to Victoria Hospital and two ‘hearScreen’ kits purchased for a pre-school. This is part of the government’s Learning Initiative to test for potential hearing and eyesight problems in children so they can overcome struggles in learning. The branch also donated a wendy house to be used as a classroom at the Kids of the King school in the Strand, as well as sponsor an under 20’s local rugby team with kit.
In the UK, a monetary donation was made to Staffordshire Women’s Aid and ALE employees donated dozens of Christmas gifts for the women and children in the refuge.
Meanwhile, ALE’s joint venture in Canada have provided monetary donations to their local Salvation Army and the Canadian Red Cross, in aid of the Fort McMurray fire relief. The branch has also sponsored two children in Cambodia as part of the ERDO childcare programme.
In Spain, ALE’s Javier Martinez set up the ‘Fundación Mari Paz Jiménez Casado’ to help people and groups suffering from cancer. The branch regularly raises and donates funds which contribute to training and clinical research.
These are just some of the many causes ALE are happy to support.
