As a result of that, we launched our Water of life projects in Ethiopia with our NGO partners on 2009. We worked with AMREF to bring water and sanitation facilities to the 56,000 residents of Kechene area and benefiting 20,000 people in South-eastern Ethiopia in collaboration with USAID and Care international. We also supported the implementation of WASH promotion in two districts in Hadiya Zone, SNNPR, Ethiopia, that benefited 44,154 people to gain access to safe water and 66,680 with sanitation (including school users) which is implemented by Water Aid. Furthermore, we also invested on a project that provides clean water to 2,000 households in Sebeta through a borehole that the community is independently managing. We are one of the signatory of CEO commitments, commitments to reduce harmful consumption of alcohol, signed by 13 international Wine, spirits, beer producers’. These Commitments demonstrate our united pledge as leading alcohol producers to build on our longstanding efforts to reduce harmful drinking.
