On Thursday 29th December 2022, Tek Experts in partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative embarked on another impactful journey of nutritional intervention to serve flood victim families in Papa Ashafa community through the Temporary Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) by delivering food relief, and other household items to the beneficiaries which will aid their recovery process and sustain their family for about 2 to 4 weeks.
Tek Experts is a leading global provider of technical talent solutions and a trusted partner to some of the world’s largest, most-respected organizations. Tek Experts is part of the YNV Group, a multinational company operating five brands across three sectors: technology, education, and real estate.
Papa-Ashafa is a locality in Agege Local Governmemt Area Lagos State Nigeria, situated nearby to Dopemu. It is a predominantly residential area with low to middle income and a high population density.
It was a bright sunny day as the volunteers and tek experts team members were present at the food bank warehouse to kickstart the outreach programs by packaging the food boxes and loading into the truck. There was also a brief tour around the food bank facility by the Tek Experts team members.
Upon arrival, the community members of Papa-Ashafa happily welcomed the food bank and Tek Experts team members. The food distribution started in earnest as the community members excitedly received their boxes of hope containing food items and other relief materials which will serve as ease to the hurdles they currently face due to the high food inflation. The beneficiaries expressed their appreciation to Lagos Food Bank and Tek Experts and prayed for more growth and expansion of the organizations.
The outreach was a huge success as the Lagos Food Bank Initiative aims to tackle hunger and malnutrition through your donations and partnerships, and the support of our wonderful, gallant volunteers.
