Seven members of a family were swept away by a flood during the recent heavy rains.
Majestic Seafood general manager George Tutu Yepoah was moved to assist grieving communities during the disaster.
He said the company also had a sense of social obligation to assist in such difficult times.
Yepoah said this when receiving a token of appreciation from Watut LLG president Waka Daimon of behalf of the affected community.
Daimon presented the gifts (bilums) to Yepoah, plant manager Lorima Seru and human resource manageress Rizzalin Reyes and pledged another gift for the company’s engineering manager Edwin Merdona.
Landowner representative Jairus Awagasi witnessed the ceremony.
“We are located on your land that provides us a great investment environment hence, we grieve with those who are grieving; if they are happy, let’s be happy with them,” Yepoah said.
Yepoah, from Ghana, was in the country for three days when Daimon met him and presented the gifts.
The company employs 1000 employees from nearby settlements.
Bulolo MP Sam Basil spent K20,000 and 20 bags of 10kg rice to the affected people.
Morobe Mining Joint Venture also assisted.
