FriEL Ethiopia Farming & Processing plc has donated COVID-19 prevention goods for Dasenech Woreda to its fight against the pandemic. The donation aims to address the dire needs in highly vulnerable areas, providing basic necessities, including food, water, cleaning supplies, medicines, face masks, and personal hygiene items. Since Dasenech woreda is in a border area to Kenya, contamination from illegal migrants from neighboring countries makes the woreda vulnerable to the pandemic.
This act of support is not the first time for FriEL Ethiopia and the company has provided medical materials to local residents and provided assistance to a student of the pastoralist society of Dasenech woreda who is studying midwifery in a higher education institution. The company is acting according to its social corporate responsibility strategy to protect the local community and its own employees.
The donation was made in the presence of STV, woreda administrative authorities, and the management of FriEL Ethiopia on May 4th, 2020 at the Dassenech Woreda Administration compound. Details of the donation are listed in the table below.
