In line with its Corporate Social Responsibility policy, Red Star Express Plc, one of Nigeria’s foremost logistics solutions providers, has been involved in the delivery of food items to several less-privileged communities in Lagos and Ogun. According to the company’s Group Managing Director, Dr. Sola Obabori, these efforts were made to support families and communities affected unfavorably by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Over the last few weeks, we have been working with some organizations to deliver food items. Some of these organizations include farm shops, religious organizations and Non-Profit Organizations (NGOs). For example, we have made a few deliveries for the United Way Greater Nigeria organization. These organizations are keen to reach as many families and communities as possible to deliver food items that can provide relief in a tough time like this. We have been to various communities to deliver items like rice, beans, palm oil and groundnut oil,” he added.
He commended the efforts of these organizations during the lockdown period and stated that Red Star Express Plc will continue to deploy its resources to ensure that more communities are reached. “As a company, we will continue to be involved with initiatives like this because we believe that it is our way of helping the families and communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful for such opportunities and we welcome more organizations that we can make similar deliveries for,” he remarked.
