As a demonstration of its relentless commitment to corporate social responsibility causes, AIICO Insurance Plc, donated reusable facemasks to the Nigerian Red Cross, We Stand Foundation and the African Clean Initiative (ACI).
Qualifying the corporate action, AIICO stated that these non-government organisations are actively leading initiatives for public health and humanitarian causes in battling Covid-19.
Besides, the AIICO statement said this aligns with the Nigerian Stock Exchange “Mask for all Nigerian” campaign initiative.
This is against the backdrop for the compulsory use of facemask in public places as a means to curtail the spread of Covid-19 as it gradually eases lockdown nationwide.
“AIICO recognises the need to impact society in meaningful ways such as this. Our hope is that by donating reusable facemasks, we join to help facilitate the adherence to this safety guideline from the government and the World Health Organisation, WHO,” Abimbola Shobanjo, AIICO’s Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability manager stated.
It would be recalled that during the lockdown, AIICO organised a feeding relief programme to feed the less privilege and also donated post-natal hygiene kits to nursing mothers in poor communities in Lagos.
