BMHS management team is excited to have been chosen by Amazon Swansea Fulfilment Centre to celebrate Black History Month and has been offered a donation of £1,000 to further its objectives of inspiring and supporting the wellbeing and enterprise development of ethnic minorities in local communities.
Alfred Oyekoya, Director of BMHS said “It’s vital that we celebrate Black History Month in order to acknowledge and recognise the often-overlooked achievements of Black people and communities and we are super excited that a multinational company like Amazon would be extending its support to the amazing work we do”
Munyaradzi Zvada, CWL1 Black Employee Network (BEN) POC and UK BEN Board Member said “October marks Black History Month (BHM) – the annual commemoration of the history, achievements and contributions of Black people in the UK. This national celebration aims to promote and foster an understanding of Black people’s contribution to Britain and to tackle challenges Black and Minority Ethnic people still face today. In line with our BHM celebrations this year, I am pleased to announce that we will be extending a donation of £1,000 to your organisation to support some of the fantastic work that you are doing towards supporting mental health and well-being within the local community. On behalf of the CWL1 Amazon community and BEN UK, we hope that this small token of appreciation will go a long way in supporting our local communities during this important month where we are celebrating diversity, equity and inclusion."
BMHS is a not-for-profit organisation focused on education and advocacy to inspire a mentally healthy BAME community by providing support appropriate to their mental health and wellbeing.
