In the light of the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) and the recent locked down due to the increased confirmed cases, FCWAMCO picked up the challenge to support over 100,000 Nigerian families in low-income communities with a relief package of Peak and Three Crowns milk.
As a socially responsible company, we recognize the impact of the recent outbreak on families particularly those in low-end communities and the vulnerable groups who are at risk of compromising their nutritional needs. With this top of mind, FCWAMCO is joining hands with the government to make a difference.
Alongside the products donated, we have also made a donation of hygiene items to support healthcare professionals working selflessly to curb the spread of the virus and promote recovery of infected patients.
Explaining the corporate gesture, the Managing Director, FrieslandCampina WAMCO, Ben Langat, said, “These are challenging times; this pandemic is testing our care for each other, and we must all rise up to the challenge. As a company, our mission is to nourish Nigerians with quality dairy nutrition, so we will continue to ensure our products are accessible so as to provide as many Nigerians as possible with essential nutrients from milk. We are committed to living this mission, more so in the face of the COVID-19 threat. I thank our teams, who are making huge sacrifices every day to ensure this.”
This donation was made in partnership with the Lagos State Government and the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development, to ensure the relief package is delivered to communities where they are most needed.
