BIT Companies is a supporter of “Rays of Hope,” an organization dedicated to providing sustainable aid and a more stable life for underprivileged children in South Africa.

BIT Companies (, developer/manufacturer of in-vitro diagnostic, clinical and hematology instrumentation, has announced its role as a supporter of Rays of Hope, a non-profit organization in South Africa which offers sustainable aid to underprivileged children in a small village on the outskirts of Johannesburg, South Africa.

“Rays of Hope is funded purely by donations from private individuals and involved companies such as BIT,” explains Marius Balger, CEO of BIT Companies. “The organization strives to provide a more stable life to some of South Africa’s township children - particularly to children in dire need. Rays of Hope secures not only the survival of these children; it prepares them to live a healthy and productive life outside the township. We feel that it is important for business corporations to be socially conscious and to help the less fortunate when we are able. So, since the beginning of 2012, we have joined others in supporting this worthy cause.”

According to the Rays of Hope organization, its main objectives are “to make our Village of Joy a place where violence as well as alcohol- and drug-related abuse are replaced by devoted care and a ray of hope on the horizon which makes every day worth living. Originally founded by Milly Jarvis, a South African woman who has dedicated her life to the cause, Rays of Hope has reached out to organizations such as the Help Alliance from Lufthansa and BIT Companies, both leading, international companies that respect their social responsibility in a global world.” For more information on Rays of Hope, please visit
