Tree Planting and Distribution of Dry Rations on 6th May
Families living on our tea estates volunteered to give us a hand in planting nearly 400 new trees in celebration of the 72nd year in tea and 92nd birthday of Dilmah Founder, Merrill J. Fernando. The same day over 5,000 families on our tea gardens and manufacturing facilities received food packs with rice, flour, sugar, coconuts and other essentials, to help them cope with shortages and the rising cost of living.
Dilmah’s MJF Foundation has supported the needs of more than 15,000 families on our own and other tea gardens with childcare centres, hospitals & healthcare centres, new housing and other infrastructure, educational scholarships, and empowerment through our Small Entrepreneur Programme. In this way we will continue to fulfil our Founder’s wish for our business to serve humanity through kindness to people & nature.
