Land Marine gives R15.5m to Covid-19 Relief Fund | 16 January 2021
Land Marine Limited has contributed $700,000 (R15.5 million) to the Covid-19 Relief Fund to help fight the virus.
It was the chairman of the company, Glenny Savy, in the presence of the company’s managing director, Hughes Adam, who presented a cheque for the amount to President Wavel Ramkalawan at State House yesterday morning.
Speaking to the press after the presentation, Mr Adam said that the company feels that apart from looking at the wellbeing of its staff, it is imperatively important also for it to look at the wellbeing of the whole population in this moment of crisis.
“We have always supported and given our help in these types of situations and it is something that we will continue,” Mr Adam said, noting that the company also assisted in the fight against Covid-19 last year.
“It is important that we stand by our population and the sooner we get ourselves in order against Covid and we get the country to reopen, it will be to the benefit of not only the businesses but for every Seychellois,” Mr Adam added.
Mr Adam said that the company is based on a profit sharing basis and it is for that reason that there is stability among its staff including among its stevedores.
Incorporated in 1994, the company provides stevedoring, shore handling and specialised transport services at Port Victoria.
