One of our sustainable commitments as Syngenta is to enhance social engagement with our farmers and communities with which we live and interact with. This knowledge is what inspired the team in Kenya to reach out and support affected communities during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Packaged in two parts, the donation entailed:
1. Hospital Donation: Providing PPEs and cleaning disinfectants to St. Mary’s Lang’ata Mission hospital; a fully-funded hospital that focuses on providing affordable healthcare, located in one of the hardest-hit areas in Nairobi, Kenya’s Capital city.
2. Buy and Donate initiative: the team bought farm products from identified struggling farmers in the five sales regions and donating these to needy communities and facilities within the same regions. These communities included children's homes, homes for the aged and even families that have been displaced by the recent floods.
