Trukai feeds displaced Bougainville Villagers

Trukai Industries has donated one tonne of rice to feed over 2,000 displaced villagers affected by the recent volcanic eruption of Mt Bagana in Bougainville.

This donation was made through the Bougainville Charity Foundation (BCF) to support the organization’s disaster relief program. President of BCF, Romulus Masiu, welcomed Trukai’s donation commending the company for its continued support to the people of Bougainville.

“Trukai’s timely donation will greatly assist the people from the two Care Centres, which have become overwhelmed with the increase of displaced villagers seeking basic supplies. On behalf of BCF, I truly appreciate Trukai’s generosity in donating 1 tonne of rice to the victims of the volcanic eruption,” said Masiu.

Masiu added that the donation will feed the affected villagers in Piva, Torokina, and Wakunai.

Trukai Industries’ CEO, Alan Preston, said that Trukai will remain committed to supporting the people of PNG.

“Trukai’s partnership with Bougainville Charity Foundation shows our long-term commitment to assisting the people of Bougainville. At Trukai we believe in helping communities impacted by natural disasters and it is during this time of need that we demonstrate our commitment to PNG.

“Trukai proudly has one of the most extensive Corporate and Social Responsibility programs in any company found in the country where we work alongside many organizations that cater to the needs of vulnerable Papua New Guineans that need our support and care. It is through partnerships that we’ve forged over the years that makes us the people’s rice, said Preston.
