Trukai Industries donated 100kg of rice as well as some merchandise to help villagers signify the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD).
On Thursday December 2nd, the company was at Porebada Village outside Port Moresby to support the Shinning Stars Association in their activity to commemorate the day that falls on December 3rd.
The theme for IDPD 2021 is "Leadership and participation of persons with disabilities towards an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-COVID 19 world".
Trukai's Public Relations Manager, Andrea Tagamasau when presenting the items said that Trukai was happy to support a worthwhile cause that empowered marginalized groups such as People Living with Disabilities (PLWDs).
"Trukai is motivated to support the community through such donations and look forward to seeing how best the association can prosper in helping PLWDs in their area".
Arebo Samuel, President of the Shinning Stars Association, thanked Trukai explaining that from the donations received they are planning on hosting separate activities in line with COVID protocols among their respective sister chapters at Papa-Lealea and Boera as well.
"Collectively there are over 75 PLWDs registered under the association as such this donation is timely to help us celebrate our day".
