On November 16th, 2021, Palau Conservation Society (PCS) received a generous donation of $200 from Kumangai Bakery.  Kumangai Bakery began from humble beginnings. Shortly after World War II, a Palauan couple by the names of Theo and Myiokang Kumangai opened up their little bakery located on Lebuu Street.    One can find an array of breads, cookies, pies, cakes, not to mention their most famous “Abrabang”, a delicious sweet bread filled with beans that originated from the Japanese Anpan bread.

Since its opening, the bakery has successfully expanded to include two adjacent restaurants: Emaimelei I and Emaimelei 2. These restaurants serve an array of local, Japanese, American and Filipino cuisine as well as catering services.  Today, Mr. & Mrs. Kumangai’s business legacy  continues to be a success through the hard work and dedication of their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The company is built upon a foundation of sustainable stewardship of safe and enviromentally concious operations and believe in giving back to the community.  Local business donations play a critcal role in PCS’s ability to continue it’s work in environmental conservation.  Kumangai Bakery’s donation is a reflection of the conservation spirit present in Palau’s business community despite the economic impacts of COVID 19.

On behalf of the PCS board members and staff, we would like to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Mr. Victor Kumangai, general manager and Kumangai Bakery for their support. PCS is proud of our shared commitment and dedication to protecting Palau’s environment for future generations to come.  Any company or interested individuals wishing to make a donation is encouraged to contact PCS’s Executive Director, Ms. Michelle Ngirutang at 488-3993, or via email at mngirutang@palauconservationsociety.org.
