Entebbe, Kampala: Premier Roses Ltd the country’s largest exporter of roses, commanding around 40% of Uganda’s raised export market has once again expressed its support to the vulnerable communities of Uganda after yesterday donating over 200 blankets among other goodies to its farm-workers in a bid to motivate them over their endless effort to boost the industry.
Despite having gone through terrible days of COVID-19 that affected his production, the horticulture company chairman and famous money mogul dubbed Nepal country Ambassador to Uganda H.E Dr Sudhir Ruparelia believes that there is always a reason to keep his workers motivated while living in advanced standards of life.
“Me I have worked in this company for a couple of years, in fact, am among the pioneer workers of this company and guess what, I have never found a reason to regret because our chairman Dr Sudhir is a person who cares and monitors our well being with all we need,” one of staff revealed.
The development comes after just recently, Ruparelia Group chairman donated 10 computers to the African Institute for Investigative Journalism. He also gave out an Shs10 million donation to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, as well as millions he has shared as a charity to schools, hospitals and slams among other multimillion expenses all as a result of Pan Africanism in him.
Not forgetting the cash, vehicles, food, and sanitation donations the Ruparelia Group made towards the Covid-19 National taskforce recently.
