Pleased they all landed safely, they are very excited to have been given the opportunity to take part in such a worthwhile event and being able to do their bit for the wider communities. Agent Lorenz commented, "I wasn't sure I was gonna make it at first. It was all happening so fast and then I couldn't breathe. But once we landed I was very proud to have been involved. It really is an experience I would recommend."

"It's important for us to take time and dedicate ourselves to causes such as this, it's easy to get absorbed into the routine of everyday live and start feeling as if though our small, day in and out contributions, don't count. But when we all band together we begin to understand just what a difference we can make as a team", states Marketing Manager Adriana Kostic. The company regularly participates in CSR activities, because it is seen as an important part of employee development.
