Jaguar Land Rover Employees Volunteer in a Major Way
Jaguar Land Rover Employees Volunteer in Major Way! As part of the Red Cross International Volunteer Day, over 150 JLR employees volunteered to offer aid, water and immunizations in Bangladesh, marking this as the company’s largest volunteering activity ever. They also took part in a “Mapathon” project which plots roads, rivers, and buildings across the Kurigram District of Bangladesh by utilizing satellite imagery. The event celebrate 64 year partnership between JLR and the Red Cross.
“Each year, disasters kill nearly 100,000 people and affect or displace 200 million more globally. Many of these places are not on any map, making them hard to reach in emergencies. By taking part in today’s Mapathon, our employees are helping the Red Cross to provide life-saving support to the vulnerable communities in Bangladesh, harnessing the talent of Jaguar Land Rover employees to create genuine social impact.” – Responsible Business Director, Chris Thorp
