MANUFACTURING giant Punjas and Sons Ltd added to its trail of social goodwill their donation of gift hampers to the Ministry of Social Welfare in Lautoka.

The hampers included cosmetic items and will be given as gifts to elderly participants at the Senior Citizens Day celebrations in Nausori on June 28.

Minister for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation Dr Jiko Luveni called it a significant milestone.

"I thank Punjas for their generous donation and look forward to having a great partnership with the company in serving the main thrust of the ministry, which is through poverty alleviation and empowering the women and disadvantaged," she said.

Company director Kanti Punja has over the years overseen a number of philanthropic programs and projects through the Punjas Charity Trust.

Group marketing manager Gopal Jadhav said continuing programs include the Punjas Product Food Ration, which is distributed to needy residents in a number of remote areas on a monthly basis.

The company is also working on extending the Punjas Childrens Park near the Lautoka Hospital, which should be completed by July 2.
