Sunseed Oils Limited provided over K40 million, which saw each of 1, 500 families getting one litre of Mulawe Cooking Oil, one unit of Sunsoap (140gm), five packets of Mulawe puffs, five kilograms of Mulawe maize flour and two packets of Ezee Instant noodles.
The organizations had to charter a helicopter to deliver the relief items as the road network remains impassable.
Sunseed Oils Limited Business Head Siddharth Sinha said the donation is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) and that they will continue complementing government efforts in alleviating suffering and pain among the survivors.
Sinha said as a responsible business entity, they were concerned with loss of lives and devastation and damage caused to both public and private property.
“We’re delighted to partner the Malawi President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera through his Operation Tigwirane Manja in providing assistance to the survivors. We wish to assure the government that we will continue providing support until the survivors recover from this devastation because the success of our business depends on a healthy and productive nation,” said Sinha.
