SunRice staff in Sydney dig deep for Femili PNG

Femili PNG’s Case Work Manager Evan Bieso tells SunRice staff about Femili PNG’s work in Lae

On 27 October 2017 SunRice launched a workplace giving program in support of Femili PNG.

Femili PNG’s Case Work Manger Ms Evan Bieso was present for the launch event at the SunRice Sydney office, and was able to give SunRice staff a personal account of how Femili PNG assists survivors of family and sexual violence in Papua New Guinea.

SunRice is the parent company of Trukai Industries Ltd, one of Femili PNG’s most generous corporate partners in Lae.

SunRice‘s Senior Human Resources Manager Mr Stephen Tatt organised the event, after seeing the important assistance that Femili PNG is providing to Trukai employees in Lae who are affected by family and sexual violence.

Mr Tatt encouraged SunRice staff to support Femili PNG through salary sacrifice, not just because it helps families in PNG, but because Femili PNG’s work directly assists Trukai employees who are dealing with FSV issues.

“I’m really proud that we’ve set up this workplace giving program and I encourage you all to contribute whatever you can,” Mr Tatt told staff.

Femili PNG’s Evan Bieso said “We are so grateful to SunRice for the opportunity to visit their office here in Sydney and speak with their staff. Our partnership with Trukai is very important, and extending it to SunRice takes it to another level”.

Femili PNG’s support association in Australia, Friends of Femil PNG has been endorsed as a deductible gift recipient by the Australian Tax Office, and hence donations are tax deductible in Australia. For more information on workplace giving for Australian organisations, visit
