E-tranzact International PLC, Nigeria’s leading provider of banking and payment services, recently provided lunch for over 2,000 vulnerable and needy in society as part of its contribution to boost the Federal and State Government palliatives to cushion the COVID-19 “Stay at Home” enforcement.
The feeding project which was embarked as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility is designed to provide food daily to vulnerable in the society especially those situated around its immediate corporate office premises and host community on Adeyemo Alakija street, Engineering Close, Keystone Bank Crescent and Idowu Taylor street, all in Victoria Island.
According to the MD/CEO of eTranzact, Niyi Toluwalope, “We are glad to meet the very important need of providing food for those who cannot afford to feed themselves due to the COVID-19 situation. As a company, we understand the need to feed the hungry and vulnerable. We have been overwhelmed by the responses so far.”
Toluwalope added that the daily feeding exercise has helped to lessen the tension and allay the fears in the minds of these vulnerable people whose livelihood has been halted as a result of the lockdown
He concluded by saying; “Let’s continue to follow the NCDC and Lagos State Government directives as we endeavour to stay safe, practise social distancing and observe all hygienic protocol.”
