Nigeria’s premium online and gaming brand Betway, has donated food items worth millions of Naira to victims of the recent flood that ravaged communities in Bayelsa State.
The presentation of the food items was done at the Bayelsa office of The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). Otunba Kunle Olamuyiwa, the Chief Operating Officer of Betway Nigeria, who led the Betway team, commiserated with the flood victims, many of whom were left homeless. The floods also destroyed residents’ only means of livelihood, inevitably leading to increased hunger amongst affected communities. This he said, is the reason why Betway as a responsible company is supporting NEMA in its disaster relief provisions for affected communities in Bayelsa.
Otunba Olamuyiwa stated that the donation forms part of the company’s duty and belief to do it’s best to leave positive imprints in the countries that Betway operates in, in addition to it’s offering of unique betting products and encouraging responsible gaming amongst players.
Receiving the relief materials, Hon. Igrubia Walaman Sam, Chairman, Bayelsa State Emergency Management Agency, applauded Betway’s generosity . He expressed joy over the company’s support of BSEMA and NEMA in providing succor to flood victims in the state. This donation, which he described as being timely due to the period which almost coincides with the yuletide, will surely bring smiles to the faces of recipients. He called on other corporate organisations and well-meaning individuals to join NEMA in providing the much-needed supports to communities affected by flood and other natural disasters in the country.
Speaking at the event Godwin Tepkikor who is the South South Zonal Coordinator of NEMA applauded Betway’s show of love by donating food and daily need materials in support of government’s efforts to cushion the effects of the unfortunate flooding of communities in the State. According to him, more companies should take corporate social responsibility even more seriously, by providing support to communities outside where they do business.
The items donated by Betway include bags of Rice, Beans, Gallons of Groundnut Oil, Cartons of Noodles, Spaghetti, Tomato pastes, Antiseptics, Tooth Paste, Bathing Soap, Sanitary Towels, among other essential items worth five million Naira
