Case IH has donated two JX55T tractors to the Tana River Area project of Welthungerhilfe in Kenya, East Africa.
The donation was handed over to Florian Landorff from the aid agency during the launch event of the new partnership between Case IH and TTEA in Nairobi
The celebration of the new sales and service co-operation between TTEA and Case IH in Nairobi and the hand-over ceremony were attended by numerous high-ranking participants including Ms. Ann Onyango, Secretary of Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries.
“We have a vision of a sustainable, productive and prospering agriculture in East Africa in general and in Kenya in particular – a vision of prospering business with and for people. This has been one of the triggers for our recent engagement as “Partner for Food” of the German private aid agency Welthungerhilfe”, said Matthew Foster during the hand-over ceremony.
“We donate these two Case IH JX55T tractors in the spirit of corporate social investment. These tractors will be deployed in projects which support small-holders, thus providing help for self-help, providing opportunities to increase productivity, food production, standards of living and family incomes. We believe that this donation will be yet another step towards our common vision of a growing and flourishing agriculture in Kenya”, said Matthew Foster.
