Hundreds of families affected by floods in Kogi, Anambra, Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers States have been given relief materials by Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc.

The items donated by the company were non-food relief materials worth N20 million. About 650 families benefited from the gesture from the member of the Standard Bank Group.

The support from Stanbic IBTC support came as the federal government had said that the floods had affected over 3 million people.

A statement disclosed that the donations were made in support of the Nigerian government’s efforts to provide relief to flood victims in the affected states.

The relief items, which included mattresses, pillows, mosquito nets, blankets, buckets, and bowls, were presented to the representatives of the state governors.

The chief executive of Stanbic IBTC Holdings, Mr Demola Sogunle, expressed that Stanbic IBTC commiserates with the people and the governments of Kogi, Anambra, Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers states on the loss of human lives and properties.

“As an organisation that prides itself on driving corporate social responsibility interventions, we were concerned about the negative impact of the floods on the socio-economic activities in the states.

“Our aid programme was aimed at supporting displaced persons in IDP camps with women and children being the most vulnerable, thus, we provided them with relief goods that will prepare them for their return home,” he added.
