Solar Lights company delivers food parcels
Solar Lights company delivers food parcels to our customers who are organised in a Renewable Energy User Group (REUG), here at Butha-Buthe district. After having been trained on Corona-Virus safety activities, the REUG requested that their incentive money for good payment is been given to them in food parcels.
This REUG wanted maize meal, beans, soup, cooking oil, sugar and bathing soap.
Speaking at the handover, a REUG member, Mr. Mokoto Mohale said, that the delivery of their incentive money came “at the right time”, because people in their village were currently living with hunger due to Corona-Virus lock-down and work restrictions.
