Transmara Sugar Company donates food supplies to 300 families after flooding

20 May 2020

The region surrounding the Transmara factory, in Kenya, been recently impacted by heavy rainfall and subsequent floods. Moreover, the Mara River broke its banks last week, causing many deaths and hundreds of families having to leave their homes.
After this tragedy, our colleagues in Kenya have showcased their solidarity by providing food donations to 300 families residing in the village of Emarti, in Kimintet Ward, as per Transmara’s corporate social responsibility agenda. A number of those helped by the company have been left homeless after the overflowing of Mara River which swept their households and animals.
“Transamra cannot operate in isolation and needs to work together with farmers and the rest of the community, especially during crises,” said the company’s Chief Operations Officer Rajesh Bhargava. “The health and well-being of people within the company’s environs is important hence the robust and functional CSR programme over the years.”
Transmara sent a team of 10 people to help local authorities, led by MP. Hon. Konchella, MCA and sub County administration, to dispatch the donations.
