As Nigeria continues to fight the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Givefood.ng, a coalition of partners tackling the feeding challenge as a result of the lockdown directives, has offered to deliver 10,000 meals in Kano State.
In a statement issued by the coalition, 10,000 meals were delivered in Kano in its first 24 hours of operation in the state.
The coalition’s founder, Kola Masha, said that ‘This expansion comes at a much-needed time when Kano State is experiencing an increase in positive [Covid-19] cases and stringent lockdown measures. We aim to continue to expand to other states across Nigeria and provide one million meals per day as we continue to connect sponsors to beneficiaries through our technology-enabled model’.
He continued further that ‘The economic impact of [Covid-19] on the vulnerable has been very devastating. The government has put in a lot of effort to alleviate suffering but it is also very important for more privileged Nigerians and corporations to join this fight.
‘We encourage all well-meaning Nigerians to join us. Visit givefood.ng and make a donation. Every donation made will go towards feeding vulnerable people in a location of your choice’.
The coalition which was launched on 4 April, 2020, and applies technology-enabled logistics solutions to help those who want to direct their resources to the vulnerable, aims to provide one million meals per week to individuals across Nigeria to alleviate their hardship during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
