  Motorworld Group staffers went “above and beyond,” volunteering their time after a busy day at work to assist with the assembly of the care packages with essential items such as food, household and personal care goods, and items specifically for the elderly and childcare.

  Motorworld Group team members went into several areas over the past week to distribute thousands of care packages in communities that suffered the most severe damage from the September hurricanes and had the greatest needs. These included Cul de Sac, Dutch Quarter, Cole Bay, Cay Bay, Simpson Bay, Belvedere, St. Peters, Philipsburg, Sucker Garden, Middle Region, French Quarter and Marigot.

  Places such as senior homes and the White and Yellow Cross Foundation, as well as places where displaced residents are staying such as the St. Maarten Festival Village, Little League Ballpark and Nina Duverly School in French St. Martin were also visited.

  Motorworld had partnered with organisations such as K1 Britannia, Rotary Club of St. Maarten, Helping Hands Foundation, One Hand Washes The Other Foundation, community councils and the Government of St. Maarten to ensure that the items donated reached residents who are in most need.

  The care packages were donated in an effort to alleviate some of the “unfortunate circumstances,” to which residents were subjected following Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September.

  The donation of the care packages and the soup kitchens held earlier are the results of a collaborative effort of Hyundai and Shell working together with the Motorworld Group of Companies. Hyundai and Shell have reinvested US $150,000 for the initiatives to bring relief to residents in need with the soup kitchens and care packages.

  “This major undertaking has been extremely rewarding. We are making a difference in people’s lives with every meal and care package shared,” Motorworld Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rena Amjad said.

  “As a local company, our commitment goes above and beyond the standard business operations, to caring about our residents’ quality of life. We take our corporate responsibility very seriously, and it brings us a sense of relief to be able to give back to those most in need,” the company’s Managing Director Tariq Amjad added.
