had staff voluntarily asking for more information AIDS.
The atmosphere over AIDS Week was electrifying - even the ostriches we
keep inside our grounds seemed energised and curious about the reason for

acknowledging the importance of the event by surrounding their 3 sites
namely Newlands Brewery, Ottery & Belville Depots with characteristic
"We Care....Do You?" banner circling an area of appox 2-3 km

the Southern Suburbs, which attracted much attention during the 08h00
& 17h00 rush hour traffic. The Banner was a bright & conspicuous

Iscor Vanderbijlpark Steel participated in the 2002 Aids Week Business
Bannerthon in support of the fight against HIV / AIDS. The 300 meter
banner rolls were displayed at our Employee Appreciation Day during our
AIDS Strategy launch. The display was a huge success as the banners proved
to be multifunctional which meant they could basically be used anywhere
and for almost anything, like to cordon off areas, to direct the queuing of
people, on stage as well as other areas which required high visibility.
Iscor is proud to have been part of this AIDS awareness campaign and
urges other companies to join hands in fighting this epidemic by making
this year's Aids Week Business Bannerthon an even greater success.
