Honeywell committed to CSR, donates to orphanages
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes, Honeywell Flour Mills Plc has given products and cash donations to some orphanage homes in Ogun and Lagos states.
The foremost producer of wheat products also restated its commitment to positively impact on humanity by giving back to the society through effective CSR activities.
Managing Director, Lanre Jaiyeola, who stated this during a visit to some orphanage homes in Lagos and Ogun where the company donated its products, noted that Honeywell Flour Mills would continue to support good cause in the society especially those that have direct impact on human development.
Jaiyeola, who was represented by Head Innovation and Sustenance, Honeywell Group, Tomi Otudeko, noted that Honeywell will continue to make its impact felt in the society, listing such opportunities to include support for sporting events, entrepreneurship programmes and vulnerable groups, among others.
“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.
“Every good organisation 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 seen to be improving the welfare of the people we serve. We should be giving back to the community and there are so many ways we have been doing that”.
“At Honeywell Flour Mills Plc, we believe in giving back to the society in our little way to support the less privileged and needy in line with our own CSR 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.
At the orphanages visited, the founders and administrators commended Honeywell for its humanitarian gesture, while also listing their areas of need that require further attention.
