Lagos, Nigeria. Dufil Prima Foods Plc., makers of Indomie Instant Noodles, has again demonstrated its passion, care and commitment to the welfare of blind and visually impaired persons in the country through its cash donation and products support for the Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind (FNSB) White Cane Day. Dufil Prima Foods Plc. has supported the White Cane Day since 2014.
It has also participated in its Charity Walk in addition to other donations made to the institution. The 2015 White Cane Day, which took place at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, saw a turnout of members, friends of the Society and well-wishers as they walked the distance from National Stadium to Costaine and back to the national Stadium.
Making the donation on behalf of the company at the “10th White Cane Day”, the Public Relations Manager, Dufil Prima Foods Plc., Mr. Tope Ashiwaju, said Dufil as a responsible corporate entity has a history of contributing to the care and development of physically challenged in Nigeria.
According to him, “our environment is not favourable for people with sight, not to talk of people living without sight. Therefore, Dufil Prima Foods Plc. saw the need to contribute its quota to ensuring that the visually impaired people have access to quality education and equal rights as other citizens in the country”.
The chairman of the Nigeria Society for the Blind, Mr. Ashiwaju Fola-Oshibo, thanked the management of Dufil Prima Foods Plc. for their kind gesture to the Society.
