Non-Profit Organization Assists Underprivileged and Special Needs Children in Bumbo's Hometown of Pretoria, South Africa and Surrounding Communities
PRETORIA, South Africa, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bumbo International, manufacturer of high quality infant and toddler products, today announced it has reached a $10 million milestone in charitable contributions to Bumbo Cares, a non-profit organization founded in 2005 to assist the underprivileged and special needs children in the company's own backyard of Pretoria, South Africa. Since the Bumbo Cares initiative began just eight years ago, more than 1,200 children, 15,000 students and tens of thousands of people in the broader community have received assistance, forever changing their lives for the better.
"People all over the world have made Bumbo a part of their little ones' biggest moments," said Joe Buitendag, CEO, Bumbo International and the son of Bumbo founder, the late Johan Buitendach. "Their support has made it possible for us to offer love and support for every child in our community, and with that comes every opportunity for success."
Bumbo donates a portion of proceeds from every Bumbo product purchased worldwide back into the Pretoria community. Over the last eight years, the $10 million in contributions has enabled Bumbo to build the Bumbo Cares facilities and develop specialized programs that support those in the community who need help the most. These programs include:
"My late father, Johan Buitendach, started Bumbo Cares and was very passionate about taking care of the children in our community," added Joe. "As we celebrate this $10 million milestone, we at Bumbo are honored to continue his mission. But, there is still more work to be done."
