No fewer than 500 residents of Ijora community in Lagos have benefitted from free food items donated by Sifax Group.

The donation was part of the activities to mark this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD) celebration.

Giving reasons why the conglomerate made the donations, its Executive Director, Business Development and Strategic Planning, Mrs. Wunmi Eniola-Jegede in a statement obtained by Maritime Bits said the current economic reality as well as the need to identify with Christian and Muslim faithful in one of the company’s host communities made the donation imperative and timely.

Her words: “Sifax Group has a reputation of supporting worthy causes across the country, especially in areas where we have operations. In the spirit of the International Women’s Day and to support citizens who are currently fasting – Christians and Muslims – we decided to share these food items to indigent residents of Ijora. In a nutshell, it’s a way of giving back to the society and a community where we operate.”

She also used the opportunity to appreciate the community for the co-operation that has been extended to the company’s various businesses operating in the community.

While commending the company for the kind gesture, the Ojora of Ijora land, Oba Fatai Oyeyinka Ojora lauded the conglomerate for bringing smiles to his indigent subjects.

He added that the community will continue to support the company’s operations. He later prayed for the continuous progress of the company.
