Sunshine’s CEO, Leo Lee said in Dar es Salaam at the weekend shortly after handing over a donation of groceries to Mwandaliwa Orphans Centre as part of activities to mark Easter Festivities that quality products will compete in the market which will lead to profits that will be shared with vulnerable groups like orphans.
Lee said he is optimistic that the company’s employees are committed to performing better because it also awards them with increased salaries and other perks. “Workers are the biggest asset for the company to succeed which also means better salaries and livelihoods,” he noted pointing out that the well off have an obligation to assist the needy.
“We as Sunshine will continue to assist vulnerable groups in the society such as these orphans who like our children are also entitled to better living conditions,” Lee added after handing over an assortment of food items, soap and cash.
“Giving back to communities is part of our culture defined through our corporate social responsibility,” Lee stressed.
In a vote of thanks, the orphanage’s Director, Halima Mpeta said the donation will go a long way to support the needs of the children who do not have a secure source of funding to meet their daily needs.
“We thank you very much because this donation will help cheer up our children during this festive season and beyond,” Mpeta said while paying tribute to Sunshine workers and management for their generosity.
She said the centre is facing a number of challenges including food, clothes and money to pay for various bills, buy perishables such as soap and relish but also transportation for children attending schools.
“This generous donation will put a smile on these children’s faces during the Easter season,” the Mwandaliwa Orphanage Director pointed out.
