GRG Team offers assistance to Flood Refugees in Mon State by giving out food and relief supplies

August 20, 2019

The Grand Royal Group (GRG) has been in the whisky business for over 2 decades since 1995. We take pride in being a reputable and credible organization that cares for our customers, workers and the people of Myanmar. We believe that our customers, staff and the people of our country are our life-blood and that they are our top priority as far as our business protocols are concerned. 

GRG has always maintained a high level of Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) which we believe will contribute to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits to all stakeholders. 

Under our “Clean Water Project”, digging of the wells and water treatments was our top priority. This was so that we could create clean water sources for more than 6,000 households and 40,000 populations in total. Additionally, with the eye-care project to cure eye vision diseases, we have given medical treatment for more than 80,000 populations. 

 We did so in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis and again following the floods of 2015 and 2016 when we worked with our business partners to bring relief to 58 badly affected villages in Ayeyarwady Region. In addition, we have supported other disasters with donations and supplies areas according to our motto “Being A Good Corporate Citizen”. 

In early August 2019, the people from Mon State and Kayin State Region suffered from a natural disaster.  GRG has donated the food supplies for those victims who are badly affected. We donated rice, instant noodle, foods, drinks, rain coats, blankets, fiber boats and etc. on 16th and 17th August 2019 at the rescue’s stations of Mon State and Kayin State. 

 “We believe that all these communities were faced with natural disaster that has caused loss of life, houses and their belongings. We would first like to express our sincere and heartfelt condolences to all the families and loved once involved in this very serious and unfortunate disaster. We believe that We have a responsibility to improve the lives of those around us especially in situations like this. We will help our people with our warm heart when they need our help” said Mr. Yin Htan, PR Executive of Grand Royal Group.  

 “The Heart of GRG campaign is one of our CSR campaigns in 2019. This is not the first time of flood donation because we did in the flood relief of 2015 and 2016 with Help Myanmar Campaign. In the Help Myanmar campaign, we went to the flooded villages by boat and donated directly to their homes. In those days, we were faced with dangerous situations and it was very difficult to reached there. Being a good corporate citizen is not only contributing with CSR programs but also contributing in Tax, law and regulations. We are the top 5 biggest tax payer in Myanmar which honored by President U Win Myint.” Said U Tint Wai, CSR Manager of Grand Royal Group.

 “It came just when we needed it most! We only aware of GRG is a whisky company who is manufacturing the Grand Royal Whisky. It was wonderful that they have a lot of programs to support their society. On my family’s behalf and mine, I would like to express our heartfelt thanks. It is greatly appreciated!” said Daw Khin Htwe who is a victim of Mon state.
