It was a moment of joy for the vulnerable and indigent members of some communities across its operating states as an Israeli firm, Reynolds Construction Company (Nigeria) Ltd, popularly known as RCC, gave out palliatives to ease the pains of the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

The palliatives were in line with RCC’s support programme for the vulnerable and poor citizens at the various communities within its project locations across the country. At the events held simultaneously in Nasarawa, Osun, Ogun, Oyo and Enugu states as well as the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, over 2,000 bags each containing 10kg rice, 2kg garri, 2kg semovita, 40x70gr Indomie, 1kg milo, 850g milk, and 3kg cooking oil were distributed through the community leaders.


Expressing appreciation for the gesture, President-General, Ameke Ngwo community in Enugu, Chief Augustine Agu, said the gesture could not have come at a better time than now that coronavirus is ravaging the entire world with its attendant hunger, sickness, apprehension and general dislodgement of the socio-economic activities across societies.

Also, coordinator of the Heart of Love Children’s Homes (HOLCH), Enugu, Prada Charles, in a letter to the project manager of RCC, Enugu, expressed gratitude to the management of the construction firm for the generous donations to the home.

Similarly, community leaders of Ogunmakin, Ogun state, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Busari Elete community in Atiba and Ajawa community in Ogo-Oluwa local councils of Oyo State, also thanked the firm handling federal road projects in the area.

Earlier, an officer of the firm, who spoke to The Guardian said the gesture was the company’s little way of alleviating the problems of the indigent citizens.
