He said the environmental laws of the country mandate them to fulfill such an obligation within the Grafton Community as it is one of their operational locations saying they had been doing so in past years.

According to him they have assisted the Grafton Community with sustainable toilet facilities for the past three years now revealing how in 2017, through their collaborative efforts, that is Milla Group and Real Value Foods, they pulled financial resources together, constructed and commissioned a four room toilet facility built within the Grafton Market.

He praised the residents of Grafton for their hospitality and wishing that the existing relationship that exists among them will continue to blossom as well as expressing optimism for the improvement of the economy so that they will continue to do more for the community.

He ended by maintaining that they are committed to set examples that will serve as pointers which other industries operating within the Grafton Community will emulate underscoring how it is important to implement sustainable projects that will positively impact the beneficiaries and even benefit generations yet unborn.

On behalf of the community residents, the Headman of Grafton ,Harrray Bangura, expressed profound thanks and gratitude to Milla Group and Real Value Foods for the gesture describing it as not only timely but very significant in improving sanitation within the Grafton Community.
