Honeywell marks Children Day, touches orphanages

Donation of products and cash worth over a million naira to orphanage homes in Lagos and Ogun states was the hallmark of activities, at the weekend, by Honeywell Flour Mills Plc, as part of programmes to mark this year’s Children Day celebration.

Managing Director, Mr. Lanre Jaiyeola, who stated this during a visit to the Homes noted that Honeywell Flour Mills will continue to support good cause in the society especially those that have direct impact on human development.

Honeywell, according to him, will continue to seize opportunity to make its impact felt in the society, listing such opportunities to include support provided sporting events, entrepreneurship programs, vulnerable groups, etc. “It is our own way of adding value to the people that we believe should have needs within the society, and our own way to alleviate poverty, suffering in the land”, he said.

Among beneficiaries of latest gestures are the SOS Village, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Little Saints Orphanage and Bethesda Home for the Blind, in Lagos where the company donated its products and cash.

Jaiyeola, represented by Brand Manager, Ball Foods, Mrs. Seyi John-Okoh said “every good organization should have a corporate social responsibility on its objectives because we cannot do anything without the people we are serving. Everything is not just about buying our products, we should also be seeing to be improving the welfare of the people we are serving. We should be giving back to the community and there are so many ways we have been doing that”.

He said “in Honeywell Flour Mills Plc, we believe in giving back to the society we live in, giving back in our little way, to support the less privilege and needy in our society, that is in line with our own corporate social responsibility goals and objectives. So, every year, we visit selected orphanages and homes. We also provide little support in terms of products, donations and cash because we know that people running those homes sometimes are doing quite a lot, they are taking care of  abandoned children, orphaned children, disabilities of different kind. They need to be supported”.

While showing their appreciation, the founders and administrators of the Homes were full of praises to Honeywell commending it for the humanitarian gesture, while also asking for more support from the government, individuals and corporate organisations.
