To mark the 2020 United Nations (UN) International Volunteering Day, staff of Henkel Nigeria visited His Heritage Home and Tabitha Home in Ibadan, Oyo State.
His Heritage Home is a transitional and care shelter for orphans and vulnerable children, while the Tabitha Home is a formal care and transitional home for orphans and vulnerable children.
Aliyu Jibril, Human Resources Manager Henkel Nigeria, who represented the managing director, Mr. Rajat Kapur said: “This year has been really tough for many Nigerians. Beyond the need to engage with our neighbours, Christmas is all about giving, hence, we have a responsibility to show how much we care for the most vulnerable amongst us, which are children. By helping put smiles on their faces, we believe we are making a difference in their lives and giving them a reason to hope for a better tomorrow.”
Chief Executive Officer of His Heritage Homes, Temilooluwa Moronkeji, thanked the management of Henkel Nigeria for the kind gesture. She said the gifts would go a long way in cushioning the effect of COVID-19 pandemic and harsh economy.
While receiving the gifts on behalf of Tabitha Home, its Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Febishola Okonkwo, described it as a timely intervention which demonstrates that Henkel Nigeria is indeed caring, and prayed for the continuous progress of the company.
