Syrex selects JAM as charity of choice for Golf Day fundraiser

Annual Golf Day, CSI

Syrex, leading provider of virtualised and hybrid network infrastructures and ICT solutions, recently held its annual Golf Day to celebrate its client successes and to raise money for charity. This year the charity of choice was JAM South Africa, an NGO focused on eliminating starvation in Africa by providing children much needed food and nutrition.

“We really believe in what JAM represents and wanted to support their endeavours,” says Ralph Berndt, Director, Sales at Syrex. “Our Golf Day was the perfect opportunity for us to raise awareness and funds for the organisation.”

JAM South Africa feeds one child for only R50 a month or R600 a year. Each meal is packed with nutrients, manufactured to a world food programme recipe which ensures that these children get 75% of their daily nutritional requirements with this one meal.

“In South Africa 26% of children under the age of six are stunted – they are not getting enough nutrition for their brains and bodies and they can’t play or learn properly, and this is where our work is targeted and making a difference,” says David Brown, Managing Director, JAM South Africa.  “We believe every child deserves a better future and it is so wonderful Syrex came alongside us. We have a new campaign of “Real Amazing”. Real is the need and the impact, Amazing are the partners who help us, playing a part in turning the cycle of poverty around through good education on the backbone of good nutrition.”
