Trukai helps Bulolo Landslide villagers
Trukai Industries has come forward to help villagers affected by a recent landslide in Bulolo, Morobe Province.
The company has given a tonne of rice as well as storage buckets to the villagers of the Ward 4 Nami Area, to help them after their homes and food gardens were destroyed last month.
Trukai Industries Marketing Manager, Maryanne Tom says the company was happy to assist communities in their time of need.
“Trukai continues to be a shining example of a leading corporate citizen in PNG doing our part in the communities under our TruCare initiative. We continue to respond to our communities in their time of need especially during natural disasters and have been doing so for years.
“We hope that this donation of rice and storage buckets will help the villagers who have lost everything, as they slowly rebuild their lives. The storage bucket is multipurpose and can be used to store rice, store water and other foods too”, said Mrs Tom.
Ward 4 Counselor, William Beebe thanked Trukai Industries adding that this support would mean a lot to the affected villagers.
“We did not expect this help but we appreciate it. This rice and buckets will go a long way to help the impacted families, most of whom are left without homes and food gardens,” said Beebe.
Mr Beebe explained that the 300 families impacted by the February 19th disaster have been sheltered by nearby families of the mine village and are now slowly trying to rebuild their lives.
