AS part of its Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR), Vitafoam Nigeria Plc., has brought succour to some victims of Boko Haram insurgency by donating luxurious mattresses and pillows to the Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in Borno State through a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), the Oasis Association.
Explaining the rationale behind the donation, Vitafoam’s Group the Managing Director, Taiwo Adeniyi stated that the donation of 100 mattresses and 100 pillows will in a way alleviate the sufferings of the people displaced by the insurgents, called Boko Haram.
According to him,“ the donation is Vitafoam’s way of giving back to society. ”
“Oasis contacted us to assisting in this regard. We believe that we are just contributing our part. We have been supporting victims of many disasters over the years and we have consistently spent millions of Naira yearly.
The significance of our donation of mattresses and pillows is better appreciated against the essence of comfortable sleep as a necessary condition for thinking better. As a good corporate citizen, we shall continue to support the needy”, he said.
Adeniyi noted that Vitafoam’s operations in the Northern part were affected by the activities of Boko Haram thus leading to some loss of revenues. He however explained that government alone could not address the level of destruction caused by the insurgents and called on other corporate bodies to assist the Internally Displaced Peoples without further delay. He thanked Borno State government for giving Vitafoam an opportunity to assist the victims.
