DHL donates $250,000 to build 100 houses in Latin America and the Caribbean

Deutsche Post DHL has recently made a donation of $250,000 to non-profit housing organisation TECHO. The donation is intended to fund the construction of 100 new homes for families living in deprived areas of both Latin America and the Caribbean.


The corporate social responsibility agenda is of increasing importance to most multinationals and DHL is no exception. As well as donating money to TECHO, DHL provides logistics support and has been actively assisting the construction of the new homes since 2010.

Deutsche Post DHL CEO Frank Appel said, "For years now, our employees in the Americas donate their time and talent to help build urgently-needed housing with TECHO and the beneficiary families. With our donation, we want to further support the important work this non-profit organization is doing, and at the same time recognize the efforts of our own people".
