“Through this campaign our aim is to reach our goal of providing dry ration kits to 1.5 families across 15 states. Since the onset of this pandemic, we have taken every possible measure to ensure that people severely affected by this lockdown are catered to. Not only have we worked on distributing ration and sanitary needs but also looked at providing tele-counselling and tele-consulting, as we are using an integrated approach to reach out to all our beneficiaries.” said Co-Founder, and Executive Trustee, Candy Destiny Foundation.
“As we face this unprecedented crisis, our news channels are also playing an instrumental role in fighting the pandemic. While bringing our viewers the best on-ground coverage, world’s top experts, deep data intelligence and an extensive fact-checking unit, we also believe in driving change through positivity, hope and perseverance. Through this series we will bring you just that- inspiring stories of hope amidst a pandemic, showcasing lives of ordinary people and vulnerable communities who are braving the odds.” said Vice-Chairperson, Nigeria Today Group.
