COVID-19: OANDO EMPLOYEES RAISE OVER N25M TO FEED NIGERIANS

05/27/2020 | 11:59pm EST

The employees of Oando Plc have contributed over N25million under The Aggregator Platform (TAP) initiative, to feed needier Nigerians as global pandemic continues unabated with millions of Nigerians living without food and basic needs of livelihood.

The employees of Oando identified that despite the financial contributions and efforts made by the public and private sector as well as Non-Governmental Agencies (NGOs) in feeding the less privileged, there is still a huge gap between those who are in dire need and those who are eventually reached and fed.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it glaringly obvious to all that the poverty crisis cannot be solved by the Government alone. Despite the social palliative measures being implemented by the Government, food relief materials being provided by NGOs and financial contributions from private sector players, it still doesn’t seem to be enough.

For the employees of Oando, COVID-19 brought home the realisation that every single individual who has the means, must play an active role in alleviating poverty in Nigeria. Through TAP the #HumansOfOando aim to rally well-meaning individuals both locally and internationally as well as more corporates to make this a nationwide cause.

Since going live at the end of March, the #HumansOfOando alongside other donors, through the TAP website taptoreachall.org have raised over N25 million and signed up nine NGOs including Lagos Food Bank, Project Ark, Child Protection Network, Grocedy, Lekki Food Bank and Abraham’s Tent to name a few.

With funding from TAP, these nine implementing partners will feed over 24,000 Lagosians across 16 of the most deprived communities over a one-month period.
