Welcome to the home of inspiring movement. Here you’ll find stories that align with our ‘Why’. This is the place to keep up to date with all the ways Kia is moving progress, inspiration and innovation within South Africa and across the globe. We love sharing what we’re working on. Experience Kia is a place where you can also ‘Drive’ our new vehicles from the comfort of your chair by staying up to date with new models, reviews and innovations in the Kia garage. If you’re looking to ‘Buy’ a Kia you’ll find details and advice on all things related to your potential purchase. We’re here to help. We believe owning a Kia should be easy. If you’re an owner #MyKia is the space for you to empower yourself to move with confidence through every step of your personal journey with us.
At Kia, we believe that we can assist in making joy visible through the smiles of our nation’s children. We help fund the Smile Foundation, a South African organisation that helps children in need of surgery for treatable facial anomalies.
Smile Foundation is a comprehensive healthcare vision for children living with facial conditions. Together with 11 academic hospitals, the organisation assists with anomalies such as cleft lip, cleft palate, nose and ear conditions, burn wounds, craniofacial abnormalities and facial paralysis.
Seven7 Drive for Kids with Cancer
In partnership with Kia, Seven7 Drive aims to visit seven cities in South Africa in seven days, visiting seven hospitals along the way, delivering toys & essentials to kids with cancer. In doing so, funds are raised for Cupcakes of Hope, who assist kids with cancer.
This project began as a once-off but thanks to its growing status, Kia has been driving the project since 2015 and inspiring many to help along the way.
Kia South Africa has had a longstanding association with RADA. We donated a K2700 light commercial vehicle to RADA to assist the organisation in delivering food and other essentials to their various RADA CARE Homes during the Covid-19 Lockdown.
RADA is an acronym for Rape, Alcohol, Drug Abuse. RADA takes positive, meaningful and effective action to combat these addictions and atrocities in order for the world to become a better, healthier and safer place in which all can prosper.
They ensure that children and adults with profound intellectual disability find joy in life, despite their limitations.Read More
Home of Hope for Girls
Kia South Africa is focused on making a difference in the lives of others through charitable donations. In 2020, we donated more than R100,000 to Home of Hope for Girls in Johannesburg to assist the organisation in providing a safe environment to children and teens who have survived abusive situations, predominantly linked to child trafficking.
Having won several awards and recognition over the years, the organisation has become a leading voice in the fight against child trafficking.
Kia South Africa has once again supported Beeld Kinderfonds by donating a Picanto 1.0 START as the grand prize in the fund’s annual fundraising raffle. 2021 is the fourth year that Kia is supporting this fundraising initiative.
At Kia, we remain committed to supporting established, credible organisations that strive for the betterment of our youth. Our partnership with Beeld Kinderfonds is an investment in the future of our nation.
Beeld Kinderfonds supports the basic and therapeutic needs of many homeless, orphaned and disabled children.
