In a statement, the company’s Corporate and Government Affairs Director for West Africa, Mr Bala Yesufu, said Cadbury was moved to make the donation by the plight of IDPs living in various camps in the country.

“The gesture is in line with our corporate social responsibility agenda, which seeks to empower the underprivileged in the society. “As a company, we believe that the IDPs require support in terms of a food drink like Bournvita that is rich in energy and essential micro-nutrients,” he stated.

Receiving the donation on behalf of UNHCR at the company’s head office in Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos, Senior Protection Assistant (Community Based), Felicia Ejike, expressed gratitude to Cadbury and urged other corporate organisations to emulate the firm’s kind gesture.
“As the United Nations refugee agency, we are extremely encouraged to see that the private sector is joining others to support the displaced. “It is evident to us that we cannot do it alone. We have to join hands in solidarity of the suffering of displaced families.”
