Saturday 4th of February, 2022 was an impact-filled day as the Lagos Food Bank Initiative through their Temporary Emergency Food Intervention Program (TEFAP) brought relief to the vulnerable families of Somolu Community in partnership with DCSL Corporate Service Limited. These items would bring relief to these families for the next 2-3 weeks.
The DCSL team arrived excited and ready to help distribute the boxes of hope tagged “Sustaining lives with DCSL” to the registered beneficiaries. The outreach was covered by the media crew of News Central with anchor Felicity Ezewuike. The distribution began with a chain of hardworking volunteers who arranged the boxes and also coordinated the registered beneficiaries. The beneficiaries showed their gratitude towards the organization and partners as they received their packages. Mrs. Tola a registered beneficiary expressed how she never expected such an amount of foodstuff. She also expressed her sincere gratitude towards the organization. Other members of the community also received some personal care items, fairly used clothes amongst others.
