Trukai donates one tonne of rice to Kukipi village
Trukai Industries recently donated rice towards a relief support for a village in Gulf Province.
The one tonne rice donation will go towards providing food for the Kukipi villagers whose food gardens, water supplies and cash crops have been destroyed by the effects of the king tides.
This impact of global warming has caused village homes to be destroyed while some were completely flooded.
Trukai’s Public Relations and Communications Manager Andrea Tagamasau reaffirmed the significance of this donation stating that this act of kindness was part of Trukai’s corporate social responsibility.
“At Trukai we believe in giving back to the community which we live and operate in because the community supports us. Through our community programs we support community organisations such as the Kukipi Flood Relief Committee to help them progress the good work that they are doing to help those who have been impacted by this effect of global warming,” said Ms Tagamasau.
Kukipi Flood Relief Committee member Molly Lava on behalf of their committees in Gulf Province and Port Moresby thanked Trukai Industries for the timely donation.
“We are very grateful for this generous donation which will help our fellow villagers and will definitely alleviate the suffering that they are currently facing,” said Ms Lava.
Trukai also gives monthly rice donations to NGOs such as Cheshire Disability Services and City Missions in Port Moresby and Lae to name a few.
Recently the rice company donated a combined 600 kilograms of rice to both Youth With A Mission (YWAM) medical ship and Samaritan Aviation in East Sepik. Both organisations attend to Papua New Guineans living in remote areas by providing life-saving medical treatment and emergency evacuations.
Trukai’s corporate social responsibility program supports a wide variety of community activities and programs for people living with disabilities, sports, education, and health.
