NAHCO Aviance donates to charity homes in Enugu
NIGERIA’S leading aviation ground handling company, Nahco Aviance has donated items and cash worth several hundreds of thousand to two charity homes in Enugu, capital of Enugu State.
The two charity homes which received the kind gesture of Nahco Aviance are Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Elderly, Awkunanaw and the Guardian Angels Motherless Babies Home, Emene.
While making the donation on behalf of Nahco Aviance, the Manager, Stakeholders & Corporate Governance, Mr. Uche Maduemesi said the Company has a habit of positively impacting on the people in all its areas of operations and beyond.
He pointed out that the company recently started service in Enugu and that notwithstanding the short time it started service, it had, as a priority, chosen to associate with the less privilege to assure them that they have a partner in Nahco Aviance.
Responding on behalf of the management of the Little Sisters of the Poor, which houses elderly men and women, the officer in charge of Charities, Sister Sylvia Blanshard thanked the Company for its support.
According to her, “We are extremely grateful to nahco aviance. You can see how the residents of the Home have come alive since you came in to visit us and spent time with us.”
She explained that the Home has approximately 60 percent of its food as donations from individuals and organisations such as nahco aviance.
She said certain people, “especially some of our Lagos friends have tried to assist us, but the money they gave us is what we have been using to rent tanker until we would be able to get ours. So whatever companies could do for us as part of their corporate social responsibility programme, we would be extremely grateful.”
At the Guardian Angels Motherless Babies Home, the Sister–in–Charge, Sister Lucy Ohadomere, while thanking nahco aviance gratefully for their kind gesture also urged other corporate organisations to follow their step.
According to Ohadomere, 28 girls and boys are in the house. Some of them had gone to school when nahco aviance’ team visited. She said the Home which was founded in 1999 by the Catholic Diocese had been a succour to so many children.
Pointing out that the Home needs cash as it spends so much on drugs and treatment for the children. The Sister thanked nahco aviance for coming to the aid of the motherless children.
Maduemesi, the Company’s representative said they had to look around to find those who really need the money and that the Company found that the Guardian Angels Motherless Babies Home deserved all the help it can get.
