Continental Outdoor, now JCDecaux in Africa, were recognised for their continuous and generous contribution to the Nelson Mandela Foundation at the unveiling of the donor wall at a function at the Centre of Memory.
The event was officiated by Sello Hatang, Chief Executive of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, and Tokyo Sexwale, the Chairman of the Resource Mobilisation committee for the Foundation. Bazil Lauryssen, CEO of JCDecaux sub-Saharan Africa, was one of the three donors invited to share their shared commitment in contributing to the facilitation of Nelson Mandela’s legacy.
Lauryssen said, 'We would like to show our gratitude and respect for Madiba, particularly in these difficult times that South Africa faces, and do our part to keep his legacy and his vision for South Africa alive.
'We are honoured to be involved in celebrating the life of Madiba, and with our new share-holders, JCDecaux and Royal Bafokeng Holdings, wish to continue our relationship with the Foundation to continue the magnificent work that Nelson Mandela spearheaded.'
'Our relationship with the Foundation goes back seven years. Key campaigns that are currently being flighted are 'Make every day a Mandela Day,' and the ARNSA and Nelson Mandela Foundation’s anti-racism campaign,' concluded Lauryssen.
