At Fanquip, we believe that it is our responsibility to give back to the global community. This is why we’ve committed to donating capital, services and our precious time to local charities and non-profit organisations. We are passionate about making a difference and strive to play an active role in supporting those who need it most.
One such example is our recent donation to Rapid Relief Team’s (RRT) Operation 322. This crisis unfolded before our eyes, with widespread coverage across mainstream media on the invasion of Ukraine. With millions of Urkaranian refugees displaced and fleeing the country, urgent aid and support was needed.
Fanquip proudly donated $250,000 towards RRT’s appeal to help with aid and humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. Our donation will go towards providing essential supplies such as food, water and blankets for those who have been affected by this crisis. We are privileged to be able to play a small part in helping those in need and hope that our contribution will make a difference to those who have been affected by this conflict.
The RRT charity was founded in 2013 as a faith-based organisation with the goal of providing quality catering assistance and tangible support to charities, government agencies and emergency services confronting some of humankind’s greatest challenges. They have volunteers all over the world who bring hope to people in their time of need, whether it be during war, fire, drought or even a global pandemic.
“We make a living by what we get, But we make a life by what we give.”
– Winston Churchill
RRT adapt their benevolent support services to meet the need or crisis at hand. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic, RRT provided relief meals to families who have been affected and other essential supplies to frontline workers. RRT’s work is fundamentally based on the belief that every human life is valuable and worthy of dignity and respect. The RRT remains committed to providing aid and support to those who need it most.
RRT’s work is founded on the Christian principles of care and compassion. With an army of volunteers who serve from the heart to serve people in need.
The organisation provides immediate relief through their disaster response teams who are some of the first on the scene at major incidents such as floods, fires and storms. RRT also runs long-term projects aimed at rebuilding communities and providing support to those who are most vulnerable. By bringing hope to those who need it most, RRT is making a difference in the world – one community at a time.
You can support RRT by donating online via their website. 100% of all donations go towards relief efforts and you can choose to direct your donation to a specific appeal. You can also donate your time by joining one of their volunteering teams. With over 2,000 volunteers in Australia and New Zealand, there is sure to be a team near you.
We have been long-term sponsors of the RRT and we will continue to support their vital work. With our donation, we hope to make a difference in the lives of those who are suffering in Ukraine. To find out more about how you can help, visit the RRT website today.
