AIICO Insurance Plc, in partnership with the We Stand Foundation, recently organized a Feeding Relief Programme to cater to the needs of underprivileged people in Lagos.
Three hundred families within the Iwaya community, Yaba, were beneficiaries of the relief packages which include a variety of food items and reusable nose masks.
According to Abimbola Shobanjo, AIICO’s Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Manager, “It was indeed a great delight to bring smiles to the faces of these people. Besides solving hunger, we also considered their wellbeing a high priority in view of the need to continue to keep safe. We leverage on key partners to spot opportunities and drive these initiatives.”
Remarking, MD/CEO, Mr. Babatunde Fajemirokun, said: “This endeavour is reflective of our corporate culture of touching lives and impacting communities. These are challenging times and we are mindful of the impact. We have a long-term plan in place to ensure the sustainability of these efforts.”
It will be recalled that AIICO also recently organized a similar programme during the lockdown period where food and other health and safety packages were distributed to people in different communities to mitigate the impact.
