MAFOLOKU AND ISOLO, JUNE 14TH, 2020 – United Way Greater Nigeria (UWGN) provides COVID-19 palliatives containing staple food and hygiene items for vulnerable communities in Lagos State.   

In response to the COVID-19 crisis and rising levels of hunger in communities across Nigeria, United Way Greater Nigeria is expanding its reach to more vulnerable communities in the rural areas of Lagos State. Its “Food For All” program is focused on distributing staple food and hygiene item to the most vulnerable; Low and Lower-Middle Income earning populations.

Since launching the UWGN COVID-19 Response Initiative in April, United Way Greater Nigeria in partnership with individuals, corporate organizations and non-profit organizations have already distributed more than 2,000 packs of food and hygiene items to people in need. UWGN COVID-19 Response Initiative will help mitigate the economic impact of the virus on these vulnerable individuals.

The philanthropic and in-kind contributions from Cymatics, Unilever Nigeria, Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce and RedStar Logistics, has enabled the distribution of about 700 packs of staple food and hygiene items and is paving the way for more distributions in more communities. United Way Greater Nigeria calls for more organizations to partner and support our efforts.
