In the light of increasing high cost of living across the country, Bristow Helicopters Nigeria Limited partnered with Lagos Food Bank Initiative on the 21st of December 2023, to provide food items and relief materials for beneficiaries of the Temporary Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) for their sustenance.

Addressing the partner representatives and those present for the distribution, the Founder/Executive Director of the food bank, Dr. Michael Sunbola, expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the partner organization for their long standing support and partnership engagement with the food bank, stating a number of projects both organizations have collaborated on to impact communities. He also appreciated the food bank volunteers that showed up in good numbers to assist in the outreach activities, commending their unwavering commitment and effort to being agents of positive change in various communities.

In active participation of the outreach activities were the representatives of the partner organization, Bristow Helicopters Nigeria Limited, giving back to the society especially in the Season of Christmas. Their kindness was very much appreciated by the beneficiaries as they shared joyful moments together. Addressing those present at the outreach, Chinyere Ogbuta, The Training Coordinator at Bristow Helicopters Nigeria Limited, appreciated the food bank for yet another successful collaboration and highlighted the importance of giving and sharing with those in need during such trying times, encouraging everyone to key into the vision and mission of the Lagos Food Bank.

Taking place at the food bank warehouse, the outreach was a huge success and a timely one, given the present economic and financial challenges that have affected vulnerable families in low-cost communities the most. A large number of beneficiaries from Ikeja Along community and other parts of Lagos were supported with their basic needs, ensuring equitable access to nutritious food and personal care items.
