Darling supports Frontline Health Workers, sets up Relief Fund To Help Small-Scale Salon Owners & Hair Stylists

Chuwuemeka Okeke (Head of Sales, GodrejNigeria), Ruth Mwangangi (Marketing Head, Hair Care, Africa), Ayodele Otujinrin (Marketing Manager, West Africa), Chitwan Singh (Business Head, West Africa, Godrej) & Prashant Chacko (Head of Marketing, Africa).
The Government-authorized lockdown of Nigeria’s commercial and political capitals along with other cities as part of the efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus commenced on March 30th, placing thousands of non-essential workers out of work, and thus, out of income. 
Some of the people most affected by this development in the hair industry are small-scale salon owners and hairstylists. In light of this, one of Nigeria’s leading hair extension brand, Darling, set-up a relief fund to help alleviate some of the economic tolls the pandemic has taken on small hairstyling businesses. The relief fund catered to five hundred hairstylists, to assist with the purchase of basic amenities. The purpose of the donation was to provide much-needed support for members of the hairstyling community who have been put out of work during this unprecedented time. 
In addition, Darling has pledged to continue supporting a select number of these small scale stylists and salon owners after the pandemic by supplying Darling hair products to several salons and stylists at no cost to help them restart their businesses.
Darling is not only supporting its immediate community; the brand is also honoring those on the frontlines of the pandemic. As the number of COVID-19 cases in Nigeria increases, more health workers remain at work to help contain the spread of the virus. To appreciate health workers for their sacrifices and commendable work in fighting the spread of coronavirus, Darling launched kicked off a campaign online tagged ‘Darling Health Workers Salute’. Several Influencers have come on board to support the brand’s campaign by posting messages of appreciation to health workers and encouraging the public to acknowledge their efforts and celebrate them. 
To further drive the ‘Darling Health Worker Salute’ campaign, Darling is working with the Lagos State Government to provide complimentary meals for health workers at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, for a period of two weeks.
While speaking on the brand’s initiatives towards COVID-19 relief, Head of Marketing, Godrej West Africa, Ayodele Otujinrin said ‘‘it is important that we come together to support each other and collectively support our health workers who are at the frontline battling the pandemic.’’ She also added that ‘‘these initiatives are part of Darling’s Corporate Social Responsibility to improve the wellbeing of the community and a means to ensure that Nigerians thrive during this difficult time’’. 
As the coronavirus continues to spread in Nigeria, with the country’s commercial centers at the heart of the scourge, Darling commends the effort of the Government to curb the spread by enforcing strict measures to keep Nigerians safe. 
Commenting further, Ayodele expressed optimism that the pandemic will soon be a thing of the past and encouraged Nigerians to stay home and stay safe.
‘‘Although these changes have fundamentally altered the daily routines of millions of Nigerians, it is important that we follow the directives from the government to stay at home. This is not a permanent state, it is a moment in time, and we will get through this.’’

The Yellow and Green Trucks Circling Nigeria: Flour Mills of Nigeria continues to Feed the Nation amidst the Coronavirus pandemic

The streets may be empty, but there have been large, yellow and green automobiles still moving around. You’re probably wondering, “why are they moving? And where are they all headed?”
Well, as you know, COVID-19 is still the most trending topic in the world, with the continuous increase in confirmed cases globally, of which, Nigeria is not exempted. The lockdown rule is still being instituted, and for many people, they have indeed been thrown in the deep, with no knowledge of how they will receive basic needs such as food and water. It has sadly become a reality that some individuals are unable to get the resources for basic food supplies.
So, to answer your question about where the huge yellow and green trucks are going; it’s one of Nigeria’s largest food and Agro-allied groups, Flour Mills of Nigeria (FMN), the makers of Golden Penny products, they are reaffirming their purpose of ‘Feeding the Nation, Everyday’.
Edo State

Ogun State

Yes! It’s so heartwarming to see the actions numerous institutions are taking during this period and Flour Mills of Nigeria is one of such companies leading the charge during this challenging period by giving back as they continue to impact Nigeria. Over a week ago, FMN sent out eight huge trucks filled with essential food items which were donated to Lagos State – Guess what? It did not stop there!
Since then, more big trucks have journeyed to Ogun, Cross River, Ekiti, Kaduna, Niger, and Edo states to off-load Golden Penny food products donated by Flour Mills of Nigeria. The food items included pasta, semovita and noodles, all courtesy Flour Mills of Nigeria. How incredible!
Cross River State

Kaduna State

During this global health crisis, let’s agree that the word, normal has been redefined. Companies like Flour Mills of Nigeria are taking extraordinary steps to ensure a majority, if not the entirety is able to navigate this situation in good health. 
See photos below for the roundup, and in case you look out of your window and see one of them, wave, place your hand on your heart as we hope for the best in this pandemic.————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–Sponsored Content
