James Omeiza and Co. an Estate Management and Asset Valuation Company with headquarters in Abuja on Sunday donated some relief materials worth over six hundred thousand Naira to Kogi State flood victims.
This rapid food support intervention is brought about by the call from Kogi NGOs Network, (KONGONET), during its flood rapid impact assessment across the Nine flood-affected LGAs in the state.
While addressing the press, a representative of the Company, Samuel Idris, said that the devastating condition of the flood victims is something that calls for worry and concern of all well-meaning Nigerians.
“Many families have lost their loved ones, children and women alike, the Government alone cannot do it. The disaster is bigger than what we see on social media.
“The flood-affected individuals counting in thousands are in need of drugs, food, life jackets, sweaters, mosquito nets, etc. This is why through the James Omeiza and Co. CSR Policy, we have made this initial donation towards the purchase of foodstuff and other relief items.
“I want to implore others to join us to #supportlokojafloodvictims, no amount is too small to provide relief materials for the affected families.
“A lot still needs to be done including more foodstuffs, medical consultations, medications, clothing, Insecticides treated nets, clothing, and temporary hygiene infrastructures (mobile toilets), among others.
“Indeed, no government may be able to adequately plan for disaster (man-made or natural) and when it happens it knows no creed, class or culture, it affects everyone in one way or the other.
The procurement and distribution of food materials were carried out by a member organisation of the Kogi NGOs Network, (KONGONET).
The Chairperson of Kogi NGOs Network (KONGONET) while presenting some of the donated materials at Sarkin Noma community in Lokoja, appreciated the donor of the relief items and called for more support.
