Some food items, provisions, and educational materials have been donated to two orphanage homes in Lagos by Egbin Power Plc.
The items were specifically given to facilities in the Ikorodu area of the metropolis in commemoration of World Humanitarian Day 2023, themed No Matter What.
The Head of Corporate Communications and Branding at Egbin Power, Mr Felix Ofulue, expressed the company’s commitment to bringing joy and value to the lives of underprivileged individuals.
According to him, Egbin Power Plc cares deeply about making a positive impact both as an organisation and as individuals, stating that the materials were given to the homes as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes.
“As a responsible corporate organization, this is one of the ways we give back to communities around us, as our support towards humanitarian organizations.
“Our commitment to giving support and help to those in need is motivated by the conviction to empower lives, promote sustainability and build a better world.
“Therefore, at Egbin Power Plc, we deem it fit to support, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” Mr Ofulue said.
It was gathered that some employees of Egbin Power took the donated items to the House of Chleo Orphanage at Ebute, Ikorodu, and Home of God’s Grace Orphanage at Itokin, Agbowa, Lagos.
The elated children at the orphanages received the items with great joy while commending the Egbin Volunteers and the GenCo for showing love and support, especially at a time they needed it.
The management of both orphanages also thanked the power-generating firm for taking the time to provide resources and support to the children, which has given them a sense of hope for the future.
The founder of the Home of God’s Grace Orphanage, Mrs Grace Bosede Boluwajoko, expressed her gratitude towards Egbin Power Plc and its employees for their kindness, concern, and affectionate gestures towards the children.
“These provisions came at the right time. You brought smiles to the faces of these children. We deeply appreciate what you have done,” she said.
