LOCAL COMMUNITY SOCIAL CONTRIBUTION
SsangYong Motor UK has a set corporate social responsibility initiatives to help fulfill its social responsibilities in the local community. Our company preserves a budget to make monetary donations with the aim to advance education, community events and alleviate those in need. It's parent company, the Bassadone Automotive Group donates £100,000 each year to support local charities. The company supports various causes, including education, health care and disaster relief. In 2023, the Group sponsored the installation of its 20th water well in Sierra Leone.
In addition to these donations, the Group has established The George AC Bassadone Scholarship, which gives a valuable opportunity for students from developing countries to pursue a world-class education and study Master of Science in Public Health (MScPH) degree at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). The scholarship provides financial support and allows students to focus on their studies without worrying about financial constraints.
