Promasidor donates to flood victims in Delta, Anambra states

One of the foremost fast moving consumers' goods (FMCG) manufacturer in the country, Promasidor Nigeria Limited has donated relief materials to flood victims in Delta and Anambra states.

(Dr) Tony Nwaka; DSM-East, Halliday Chimezie; Business Development Manager, Segun Koleosho; Corporate Communication Coordinator, Isiaka Lawal and the Regional Sales Manager, Gibson Umeh all of Promasidor during the donation in Asaba, Delta State recently.
 Promasidor representatives, led by Divisional Sales Manager - East, Halliday Chimezie supported by the company's Business Development Manager, Segun Koleosho, visited and made the donations to the victims at a camp in Asaba Delta State.

They gave reasons behind the company's action as a way of giving back to the society where it operates and as part of its corporate social responsibilities.

The Delta State Commissioner for Special Duties, Hon. (Dr) Tony Nwaka who welcomed the team to the camp and formally received the products on behalf of the victims in their presence expressed his deep gratitude and appreciation to Promasidor for its wonderful humanitarian gesture. He also called on other corporate bodies to emulate the company and do the needful. “These people really need help as some escaped to the camp with only the clothes on their backs.”

During the visit, one of the victims Mrs. Helen Otobo from Oko – Amakmo area of the state who has been in the camp with her family for more than two months expressed gratitude to the company and the government but still nursing fears on the state of the house they left behind.

She said though her own house is a brick house unlike the mud houses that have been damaged completely she still fears the structure (foundation) could have been weakened and thereby become dangerous to live in. She implored Promasidor and other corporate bodies not to limit their assistance to them while in camp but should also extend it to them when they go back to their homes, where they will have to start life over again.
