KAKATA, August 7 (LINA)- The Salala Rubber Corporation (SRC), a natural rubber plantation company in Gibi District, Upper Margibi County, will continue to live up to its social responsibility, despite the daunting challenges it is faced with, the company’s management has assured.
In an interview with the Liberia News Agency about its community relations projects, SRC General Manager Nicolas Bergerot said under its Corporate Social Responsibility Program in 2014 alone, it implemented several community relations projects ranging from road construction, building bridges and construction of hand pumps, among others, for the common good of people within its concession area and its surroundings.
He said: “to achieve this ultimate goal of the company, under our community relations program, we will endeavor to do that which will make inhabitants of the area live happy lives at all times.” He however noted that such things do not come at once, saying they evolve over a period of time”.
According to Bergerot, his company is not just interested in extracting the resources from its area of operation, but also giving back to the community.
Under its 2014 community relations projects under its Corporate Social Responsibility Program, the Salala Rubber Corporation constructed over ten hand pumps, with four in the Barclay farm area in Weala Town, while the rest were constructed in villages and towns located in proximity of its operational area.
Mr. Bergerot stated that his company intends to do more, especially in the area of water and sanitation adding “without clean and safe drinking water for the inhabitants and a clean environment, they cannot live healthy lives”.
He then urged community dwellers to take ownership of the facilities provided them by his company as they are intended to help improve their living conditions.
