Food is a basic need for all human beings and thus the Amrit Foundation Trust has been involved in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs such as famine relief efforts that specifically target the vulnerable communities around the group entities and other counties.
During periods of famine, displacement due to floods or the covid-19 pandemic, the Amrit Foundation Trust has played a part by continuously supporting and participating in various food donation drives over the years to under-privileged communities.
The group continues to diversify in food production at Aquila Farm and participate in sustainable feeding programs to a wider community. Some of the foundation’s relief efforts include:
VICTIMS OF LAKE NAIVASHA FLOODS
The foundation has continued to play a key role in relief efforts towards families affected by floods in and around Lake Naivasha area, through the donation of food items, sanitary towels and clothing.
PRAYERS BEYOND BOUNDARIES (PBB) – MAAI MAHIU
