MLP values charitable giving and has partnered with numerous organizations to volunteer and to provide aid.
MLP continues to be a champion supporter for HeartGift. HeartGift provides life-saving congenital heart defect surgery to children from around the world where specialized medical treatment is either scarce or nonexistent.)HeartGift Louisiana has performed lifesaving heart surgery for 75 children since 2010. Of those, ED&F Man has sponsored 26 of the children – including the very first child and the 75th child in 2022.
ED&F Man UK employees volunteer and raise money for this worthwhile organization. While volunteering for Merseyside Blood Bikes, the organization received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, celebrating the outstanding work of local volunteer groups and is the highest award of its kind issued in the UK.
Blood Bikes perform the following services:
- Transports tissue, organs, blood, and breast milk on motorcycles to hospitals and hospices
- Saves lives by providing these urgent and critical services free of charge and faster than alternative methods available
- More than 7,000 rides per year are provided by unpaid volunteers.
ED&F Man Relief Fund
The ED&F Man Relief Fund (comprising employee contributions plus a company charitable match) was set up to provide aid to victims of natural disasters. Following hurricanes Eta and Iota that devastated sugarcane communities in Honduras in 2020, the Relief Fund made short term donations for immediate emergency relief and a more substantial donation to rebuild a medical clinic that was in poor condition following the storms. This medical clinic provides care for over 6000 people each year in San Antonio de Majada community of Honduras.
This 3 minute video shows the impact of that long-term rebuilding project.
Please reach out to your local MLP office to discuss your sustainability targets and how we can be part of the solution.
