-As Petro Trade Celebrates 170th Independence Day With Them
As part of efforts to kick off its corporate social responsibility initiative, a local petroleum giant, Petro Trade has celebrated this year’s Independence Day by supporting a community in Bomi County to further enhance their sustainability.

On the eve of the holiday, group of Petro Trade staff members visited Tubmanburg delivered care packages, materials, and pen their agreement. “Liberia is in need in many areas all over the country, at Petro Trade we want to make a lasting impact, so, in addition to donating basic necessities, we are also providing the community with the tools and means to be self-sufficient,” the chairman, Ibrahim Hamdan said.
“We look forward to this continuous relationship with this community and we are excited to see the products that come from this exceptional day.”
Petro Trade provided two groups, the Sadaya Group (elderly and vulnerable citizens) and the Group 77 Agriculture Project with materials for farming, baking, sewing, and soap making projects.
Some of the items received included sewing machines, bags of flour and sugar, baking powder, wheelbarrows, gardening hoes, rain boots, fertilizer and more.
Petro Trade also provided the elderly and vulnerable citizens with medical equipment such as wheelchairs, crutches, walking stick, and sunglasses.
The chairman indicated this marks the first phase one of the MOU that was signed into action earlier this week.
“Petro Trade will support the community and their initiatives for the duration of one year, with the hope of implementing new programs and building on existing ones.”
According to him, the company topped off the day with 500 care packages to the community, with a special trip to the Bomi Hospital. Staff personally visited sick patients and went to the door steps of the elderly to deliver the bags that included gari, (cassava powder) rice, vegetable oil, canned fish, bath soap, detergents, toilet rolls, toothbrushes, toothpastes, and more.
Both Petro Trade and the citizens left the day with smiles and hopeful hearts.
“Getting to know your communities on a deeper level is important to understanding your demographic, we could have just brought rice, but, scratching the surface just a bit reveals a community with many skillsets,” the marketing manager Jefyne Togba said.
“It is such a rewarding feeling to give back, but an even better feeling knowing you are empowering a deserving group of people.”
This initiative is part of Petro Trade’s CSR program, which focuses on contributing to the social and economic development of Liberia in a more meaningful and impactful way.
Official of the petroleum distributing company said in order to achieve this goal it monitors the program through clear objectives and activities that are monitored and evaluated through these measurements; impact, relevance, measurability, and visibility.
