In July, 2010, Stans Energy Corp (TSX-V: RUU) (Stans, or the Company) hired a local transport agency to directly deliver relief articles to one of Osh Children’s Orphanages, in response to the severe hardship resulting from recent events in the South of the country. Included in the donation were much needed diapers, soap, baby cream, medical supplies, food and financial assistance for the orphanage’s staff.
Stans has also been engaged in supporting the local town of Aktyuz; a previously vibrant area in the years when the Kutessay II rare earth mine was in operation. Thus far, the Company has hired five residents of the town, refurbished the town school, provided rewards to the local school’s straight-A students, and donated money to assist the town’s war veterans.
Rodney Irwin, Kyrgyzstan’s Honorable Consul in Canada, and Chairman of Stans Energy Corp stated, “As Stans’ projects in the area progress, the company intends to continue its good corporate citizenship to provide work and training for the residents of Aktyuz, in an effort to restore the town’s proud history.”
Stans has budgeted up to $15,000 USD in 2010 for community development, including the aid to the orphanage, as a responsible business citizen in Kyrgyzstan.
