Momas Electricity Meters Manufacturing Company Limited has donated relief materials to the residents of its host community, Orimerunmu in the Mowe area of Ogun State, to cushion the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The relief materials, including bags of rice, hand sanitisers and face masks, were distributed to the different community development associations within the area on Friday at an event held at the Baale of Orimerunmu place, according to a statement.
The Chairman, MEMMCOL, Engr. Kola Balogun, said the donation was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility aimed at providing relief for the people of the communities to ease the difficulties induced by the pandemic.
“We are donating these relief materials as a way of showing our concern for the well-being of the people of our host communities, especially during this trying period.
Each beneficiary would get 5kg bag of rice, hand sanitiser and face masks,” he said.
Balogun said the company had also concluded plans to embark on disinfection of the communities with a view to keeping the people protected from the spread of the virus.
“To achieve this, we have procured three tricycles and converted them into a fumigation van. These trucks loaded with disinfectants would be deployed in the communities to disinfect the communities,” he added.
In his remarks during the presentation of the relief materials, the Baale of Orimerunmu, Chief Mustafa Akiode, commended the company’s management and staff for the donation and for identifying with the community.
He urged the CDA leaders to ensure that the items get to the most vulnerable within their respective community.
Responding on behalf of the CDAs, the Chairman of Powerline Community Development Association, Pastor Obajemu Joseph, thanked the company for the donation and the planned disinfection of the community.
He promised that the CDAs would be ready to cooperate and collaborate with the company at all times for the development of the community.
