KPC Donates Food to Residents of Thange

Kenya Pipeline Company has once again donated food to residents of Thange in Makueni County as part of the ongoing corporate social investment program in tandem with the clean-up exercise. The distribution exercise, which took place recently, was a response to the affected residents who were affected by the oil spillage along Mombasa-Nairobi pipeline in May 2015. During the exercise, KPC donated 500 fifty-kg bags of maize and 220 fifty-kg bags of beans. These donations targeted 990 households drawn from 8 villages within Thange area. Each household received 24kgs of maize and 8 kgs of beans. The distribution process was conducted by village elders under the supervision of the local national Government administration officials. KPC has over the last two years spent over Ksh 22 million in support of the Thange community through provision of clean water, food aid, and bursaries for the poor children from the area.
