“Doing well by doing good”.

We strongly believe that if a company is doing well, it has both a moral and ethical duty to share that created wealth with the community.

It’s about “Creating Shared Value”. We win and the community wins.

And this compassionatephilosophy is embedded in everything we do amongst our corporate family. Our mutual goals are set to aim for a healthier future for our companies, the community and our planet.

Movember – Changing the face of giving

Over the course of November, the selfless and generous men of Prudential Shipping , Helanka Vacations and Premium trading took on their roles of ‘Mo Bros’, growing and grooming their moustaches throughout the month to raise funds for a donation to the Shilpa Child Development Home by becoming walking billboards as many outsiders would inquire as to why they were growing their moustache. However, this event wasn’t just for men, the women of the companies or ‘Mo Sistas’ showcased their unwavered support towards the men in their lives by raising awareness, signing them up and doing all a Mo Bro would do, except without the Mo.

Prudential Shipping and Helanka Vacations donated a sum to the Shilpa Child Development Home for each Mo Bro who participated, thus engaging and motivating all in the the true essence of Movember. The total donation were made from donations both internally and from the gracious contributions of the company’s friends and families.
