Engen Tanzania pledges support for disaster recovery

Sept 21, 2016: Following the devastation caused by an earthquake in Tanzania, Engen has pledged Tshs.10 Million in a show of support.

“We trust that our donation will play a small part in helping to meet some of the challenges that lie ahead of this tragedy,” says Paul Muhato, managing director, Engen in Tanzania.

TasneemSulaiman-Bray, Engen General Manager: Corporate Affairs says that Engen is committed to supporting those in difficulty. “We wish the people of Kagera strength through the difficult task of rebuilding their homes and lives.”
