What we do for our communities

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected our communities in different ways and we want to do everything we can to support where we can. We are therefore implementing a range of measures to support our communities in promoting their health and well-being. We believe that everyone has a part to play in the fight against Covid-19.

To help those who need it most during these difficult times, our operations in Mauritius sponsored 1,000 food packs for families in need through several NGO's. The product were packed in our cement bags and sdistributed to the neighbouring regions of our business areas. Utmost care was taken to ensure the distribution was carried out in compliance with all health regulations such as wearing gloves, masks and maintaining social distancing.
