 TRUKAI industries has announced that it will continue to support Port Moresby City Mission in meeting certain needs of destitute young men, women and children.

Trukai marketing coordinator Fred Toua said the industry would be making donations of 50 kg of bale Trukai natural brown rice every month to the mission as part of the partnership programme.

“The rice will be used to support the City Mission New life skills traiing centre, the headquarters at Koki and the women and children refugee centre at Haus Ruth at downtown,” Toua said.

He said Trukai was happy to continue their partnership into the sixth year with City Mission.

“Trukai is the name that is commonly linked with sports in PNG because of its popularity with Trukai fun run but nevertheless, we are committed to get involved and support the community in more ways than sports,” Toua said. 

He added that the sense of fulfillment for the company and its staff came from knowing that their support in the partnership was helping the underprivileged get back on their feet and also show consumers that it was through their purchase that they were able to give back to the community.

City Mission general manager John Reesink said city mission was grateful for the support shown by Trukai and hoped that they maintained that partnership in the future.

“We are thankful for the support by Trukai for the last six years and their commitment again this year and are hoping that the partnership continues in years to come,” Reesink said.
