Introducing Our Chosen Charity: The MIK Foundation

Back to Blogs

​Throughout the year, WRS has actively supported charities, raising funds for MacMillan, Mind, and more. In a bid to make a positive impact and amplify our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts, we’ve teamed up with our sister company, WQS, to support Ugandan charity The MIK Foundation.

Read on to find out more about our chosen charity… ​

What is The MIK Foundation?

Founded in 2014, The MIK Foundation is an orphanage based in Hoima town, Uganda, aiming to bring hope to marginalised children, orphans, and abandoned children in the Bunyoro region. Dedicated locals run the orphanage, providing a home to around 70 children in the region who have endured challenging backgrounds.

The orphanage has a lot of local support, but it lacks external support. The MIK Foundation’s children require food, bedding, toys, clothing, shoes, school supplies, and a well-stocked first aid kit.

The story so far

Our global team collectively searched for a worthy cause close to our WQS Ugandan HQ and came across The MIK Foundation – somewhere WRS could make a significant positive impact.

WRS, WQS, and Q-Sourcing have collectively donated all necessary school supplies, shoes, and gifts to ensure the MIK Foundation is well-equipped for the new school term. ​

What’s next?

As the new school term approached, we wasted no time in extending our support. Through our collective efforts, we provided essential school supplies, ensuring that students had the tools they needed to pursue their education. But our dedication doesn’t end there.

With Christmas around the corner, we've broadened our outreach by donating clothing and essential food items, aiming to bring comfort during this festive season.

The MIK Foundation continues to be our charitable focus. Our pledge to extend unwavering support and aid throughout the year remains resolute. We're not stopping at these initial contributions; we're actively strategising and planning various fundraising initiatives. These initiatives are designed to ensure a sustained and enduring impact, assuring continuous backing for this noble cause.

At WRS, we believe in creating lasting change. Our collaboration with WQS and unwavering dedication to The MIK Foundation exemplify our commitment to fostering brighter futures and making a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most. Join us on this journey as we continue to stand by our pledge of support and empathy, turning compassion into action.
