The COVID-19 global pandemic continues to threaten human life, with the attendant lock down further threatening the economic livelihood of many in our society, particularly the less privileged.
As part of its contribution to the society, Swifts Networks Limited distributed Food items, Hand Sanitizers and Face Masks to members of the public within the environs of its Victoria Island and Ogba, Ikeja offices. Well over 10,000 persons benefited from this exercise which many saw as a welcome palliative.
Commenting on the gesture, Charles Anudu, Managing Director, Swift Networks Limited, stated that the company had to be its brother’s keeper, particularly during difficult times like this. Considering that more than 80% of Nigerians struggle daily to be able to put food on the table, a lot of such were further challenged and severely constrained by the lock-down. As such, we felt it was also our responsibility to extend a helping hand to the most vulnerable in our society.
The distribution was supervised by personnel from relevant security and health agencies, with recipients also educated on the need to regularly observe safety measures like washing of hands, using hand sanitizers, use of face masks, personal hygiene, social distancing and hospital visit if they feel unwell.
