In a demonstration of its commitment to make sustainable living commonplace through its operations, Unilever Nigeria has donated its hygiene portfolio brands – Lifebuoy, OMO, Sunlight soaps and detergents to Ogun and Lagos state governments in complementing their efforts to combat the coronavirus challenge.
While making the donations to the government of both states, the Director, Corporate Affairs & Sustainable Business, Ghana and Nigeria, Mrs. Soromidayo George commended the states for leading effectively in the crisis and demonstrating capabilities to stem the spread of the virus with adequate preparation of the right infrastructure set up for affected people to be treated.
“Since the confirmation of the first case, the government has proven beyond reasonable doubt their capabilities to curtail the virus from spreading to become a pandemic.
“The strategic engagement of the state in keeping everyone informed through its channels of communications has been effective with the right actions taken to keep everyone safe,” George said.
Brand Manager, Beauty, and Hygiene, Unilever Nigeria, Motunrayo Babalola, also added that the Lifebuoy brand and other hygiene products of Unilever has been in the forefront of the global battle for combatting diseases like Ebola, Diarrhea, and others.
Babalola noted that hygiene plays a crucial part in combatting many of these diseases. She noted that the Unilever brands such as Lifebuoy have social missions that have committed to helping people always live well by promoting hygiene in all spheres of live.
This is a charge, she said that specifically comes to bear during these challenging times.
