During a proposal to relieve child starvation and malnutrition in Nigeria, Hollandia, the leading dairy label from the kennels of CHI Limited, on Monday, May 27, 2019, distributed dairy products to more than 500 children at the Bogije Internally Displaced Person’s (IDP) camp in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos State.

The Hollandia No Kid Hungry Foundation took Children’s Day, marked every 27th of May, as well as the World Nutrition Day, which comes up every 28th of May, to rejoice with the children as both days are of great value. Though the primary target for the invasion was 300 children, the outpouring of persons from within the area began to the commitment of a higher number of disadvantaged children.

Addressing during the visit, the Managing Director CHI Ltd, Mr Deepanjan Roy, represented by the Head of Administration, Mr Ebere Osunkwo, stated that “As a socially responsible company, we are naturally enthusiastic about child nutrition. And in cognizance of the distressing situation with child nutrition globally and nationally, we initiated the Hollandia No Kid Hungry Foundation as a vehicle for contributing, in our own way, towards slowing down the spiralling number of cases of hunger and malnutrition amongst children.”

He continued that the Bogije IDP camp visit marked an important breakthrough in the Hollandia No Kid Hungry Foundation’s approach towards mitigating child hunger and malnutrition.

He also declared that “Many children have found themselves in certain adverse conditions due to no fault of theirs. When you think of these children in the IDP camps, you can imagine how many go to bed hungry every single night. Even when they get to eat, how nutritious is the food they consume? So we thought to ourselves, what better way to identify with them than on their day. This is why we chose to celebrate the Children’s Day and World Nutrition Day with them and at least put smiles on their faces.

Responding on behalf of the community, Chief Tajudeen Oniwolu, the Baale of the Bogije Oniwolu Estate, expressed his gratitude and joy at the event which he described as auspicious. He said: “I am very grateful to the management of CHI Ltd for this special visit and the donation of their products to the children today being Children’s Day. It is obvious for all to see that the children are very happy and as the Baale of this community, this really gladdens my heart. I call on other companies to emulate this kind gesture. I also beckon on CHI Ltd to continue with this very laudable initiative.”

Commenting on the initiative, Mrs Regina Ayomanor, Project Coordinator, Web of Hearts Foundation said: “As seen on the faces of the children, we are indeed happy and grateful to Hollandia for this act of kindness to the IDP children in this community. It is true that children ought to live up to their dreams, but some of these children have no food, not to talk of a future. We say a big thank you to Hollandia No Kid Hungry Foundation for the huge impact they have made today and look forward to more partnerships with them in the future.”

The donations were made under the auspices of the Hollandia No Kid Hungry Foundation, the vehicle for the brand’s corporate social responsibility initiative which aims to alleviate child hunger and malnutrition in Nigeria.
