This assistance demonstrates Trukai Industries’ support for community activities under its health initiatives, which is a part of its corporate social responsibility program.
The CT Scanner was presented to the Bougainville Charity Foundation’s (BCF) fundraising drive to purchase a cancer detection equipment.
BCF has helped many remote communities throughout Bougainville in various aspects, which include education and health with its recent fundraising appeal to purchase the cancer equipment for Bougainville’s main hospital.
BCF’s Chairman, Romulus Masiu described Trukai’s timely donation as a blessing to the people of Bougainville.
“I open heartedly accept Trukai’s willingness to assist us and I am thankful for this donation,” said Masiu.
He added that Trukai rice is a vital food source for areas in AROB where food can be scarce.
“Trukai Rice has become a staple food in most households in Bougainville, especially in most outlying Atolls of the Region, and even on mainland Bougainville whereby garden produce is not easily available and comes in seasons.
“Weather patterns play a very big role in how the people cultivate their land and rice comes in to sustain the people during their time of need.”
Trukai Industries Chief Executive Officer, Alan Preston said the company would remain committed to helping the people of PNG.
“Our partnership with Bougainville Charity Foundation shows our commitment to help health facilities like the Buka General Hospital. It is through partnerships like this, that we can be able to assist communities that need that added support,” said Preston.
