East African Breweries supports Kenyan families facing hunger with KSh30m


East African Breweries PLC (EABL), along with other corporates, has announced its contribution to the Kenya Association of Manufacturers Humanitarian Initiative geared toward raising food distribution funds to families facing hunger and starvation.

EABL supported the initiative to the tune of KSh30 million.

The fundraising initiative comes when famine and drought continue to ravage millions of Kenyans, especially in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL).

The ongoing drought has been termed the worst in over 40 years and currently affects 23 Counties.

The Chief Guest, Deputy President of Kenya,  Rigathi Gachagua, reiterated the government’s commitment to mitigating the current food crisis and thanked the private sector for partnering with the government.  

East African Breweries PLC (EABL) Managing Director Jane Karuku attended the ceremony, where she handed over the KSh.30 million cheque. 

She affirmed EABL’s commitment to creating shared value, and empowering the communities that live, work, source and sell around the brewery.
