In order to aid areas in Nigeria that have been impacted by floods, the Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) has donated N50 million.
When presenting an N50 million check to the Nigerian Red Cross Society at a ceremony in Abuja on behalf of MOMAN Chairman Olumide Adeosun, MOMAN Chief Executive Officer Clement Isong stated that the recent floods, a humanitarian calamity, did not seem to be receiving the attention it needed.
He mentioned how horrifying the images of complete devastation in communities in different parts of Nigeria are and emphasized the necessity for corporate organizations to provide support.
He said in earlier calamities like COVID-19, Nigerians came together to support one another, but with the floods, it seems like the rest of the world is taking things more seriously than Nigeria.
Abubakar Kende, the secretary general of the Nigerian Red Cross Society, was overjoyed to receive the donation and expressed his gratitude to MOMAN for their social responsibility demonstration. He also pledged that the money will be used to help those affected by the flooding.
The Nigerian Red Cross Society launched an emergency appeal to gather 13 million Swiss Francs for flood victims in Nigeria around two weeks ago.
According to Kende, these funds are intended to support up to 500,000 displaced people and focus on the provision of basic Food, Health, Care, Water, Sanitation, Hygiene Promotion, search and rescue, Rapid NEEDS assessments, deployments of Emergency First Aid Teams, and many other services necessary to alleviate the general suffering brought on by the effects of flooding.
