As part of our continuous community engagement programme, Grand Royal Group International (GRGI) has made donations on basic food stuff to the residents and villagers around our factories in Yangon and Mandalay in Myanmar.
The COVID-19 situation and the current world economic crisis has affected millions of our countrymen and their livelihoods. GRGI is fully aware of this social impact on the lives of people, and we are making efforts to try to help as many people as possible. We believe that charity begins at home and with that, we want to help our closest communities first.
We donated food boxes consisting of 13 items of basic food stuff and 2 packs of 25 kg rice which altogether is worth in total of 100,000 MMK per household with 932 for Yangon and 126 for the Mandalay areas. These donations come from over 380 million Kyats raised by employees, which is toped up with company’s budget. In addition, we have donated over 1 million kyats each to monasteries, nunnery, and church in our immediate vicinity. (Yangon- 1 monastery, 1 church, Madalay-6 monasteries and 1 nunnery).
On April 1st, 2022, GRGI staff delivered the donations to the residents and villagers. We hope that our efforts will help some people to tide over these trying times.
