Deriving from a stakeholder need assessment perspective, promotion of Access to Energy and Health which form part of the pillars of Total Nigeria Plc’s Sustainable Development strategy, the company on November 15, 2016, reached out to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in some IDP camps in Abuja.

Total Nigeria Plc with the Nigerian Red-Cross Society donated and distributed 3,000 long lasting insecticide treated mosquito nets and 1,000 Awango by Total solar lamps to the IDP camps residents.

Managing Director Total Nigeria Plc  Mr. Jean-Philippe Torres, represented by the General Manager (Human Resources & Corporate Services/Company Secretary) Mrs. Bunmi Popoola-Mordi, while presenting the items to the IDPs said “This gesture is part of the Group’s contribution in addressing the social challenges of internally displaced persons in our society. Our sister company, Total EP Nigeria Limited, had earlier donated $550,000 to the IDPs which is been managed with the Red Cross Society for gradual disbursement over the next two year period, towards addressing some of the challenges at the IDPs in Nigeria.
