On the 2nd of April 2022, through the Temporary Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) the Lagos Food Bank Initiative in partnered with Archer Daniels Midland Wild (ADM) Nigeria to bring food relief materials to sustain them for 2-3 weeks.
The ADM Cares team excitedly joined in the distribution of the boxes of hope. The community members of Papa Asafa discussed with volunteers of the Lagos Food Bank Initiative about some of the striking challenges and hurdles they are currently facing, and how the food bank’s visit has brought hope to their community. ‘As always, the Lagos Food Bank goes out of their way to bring food and hope to the vulnerable members of various communities and this outreach at Papa Asafa is no exception’ said one of the new volunteers at the community outreach.
The intervention was successful as the other members of the community and children received relief items like fairly used clothes, personal care items amongst others.
