Motorworld Group


COLE BAY — Hyundai Motor Corporation (HMC) and Shell working together with Motorworld, have pledged $150,000 in post-hurricane relief support to St. Maarten/St. Martin, and the surrounding region. HMC is a multinational automotive manufacturer of the Hyundai brand vehicles which are sold by Motorworld, the exclusive dealership in this region.

“As we remain steadfast in our efforts to recover and rebuild after the devastation caused by the hurricanes, we are truly excited about this opportunity to work with HMC and Shell to support the communities that we are apart of, and, proud to serve,” says Tariq Amjad, Managing Director, Motorworld Group of Companies.

All of the relief support will be invested directly back into the community through Motorworld’s community outreach efforts. This will be done in various forms to provide direct benefits and bring relief to the community. This includes a mobile ‘Soup Kitchen’ with distribution of complimentary soups to individuals in need of a warm meal at various locations throughout the islands.

Further, thousands of care packages with general food and household goods will be distributed, as well as items specifically for the elderly, and parents with babies who are in need of essential childcare items. These activities will take place throughout the months of November and December.

“With corporate responsibility always in mind, our goal is to provide a sense of relief to the entire community during these trying times. This includes the local businesses that we are working with to purchase these items, as well as various local caterers who will be preparing the soups, and most importantly, also to the residents who are in need,” says Amjad.

Motorworld will be working with their dedicated staff, along with several social organizations and community foundations such as K1 Britannia, the Rotary Club, Helping Hands Foundation, as well as the Government of St. Maarten in order to effectively and fairly distribute the relief goods to various residents who are experiencing unfortunate circumstances.
