Terracares4Naija, the corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative of Terra seasoning cube aimed at putting smiles on the faces of 10,000 residents of 10 Lagos communities from now till Christmas by providing them nutritious food visited Majidun community in Ikorodu on Saturday, October26, 2019.
Indeed, it was early Christmas in the fishing community as children, youths and adults in their thousands trooped out to savour the hospitality of Terracares4Naija.
There was music, dancing competition and finally the community was fed as the residents lined up to collect packs of food.
Speaking at the event, Mrs Nnenna Onyenacho, Media and Activations Manager of TGI Distri Limited, makers of Terra Seasoning Cube, said the Terracares4Naija was initiated as part of the activities to mark the United Nation’s World Food Day on October 16; to put smiles on the faces of Lagosians by providing 10,000 0f them with nutritious, wholly produced and prepared Nigerian meal.
According to Mrs Onyenacho, the initiative is not a brand promotion as there is no condition attached for communities to be visited.
She said that Terra Seasoning Cube launched earlier in the year in two variants of chicken and beef has received overwhelming acceptance in the market hence the Terracares4Naija is a way of showing love and care to Nigerians especially in the rural communities.
The residents of Majidun community were full of appreciation for the gesture.
An excited community leader in the suburb of Lagos, Mr. Biodun Ogunsanya called on other corporate organisations and wealthy individuals to emulate the gestures of TGI Distri Limited by assisting the government in the care of the poor and the underprivileged in the society as it will help in cushioning the economic hardship faced by millions of Nigerians in this class.
Miss Doubra Titiboh, a senior secondary school student of Ipakodo Secondary School, Ikorodu who won one of the dancing competitions said TGI Distri is the first company to visit the community with such a welfare programme.
She said the experience will linger in her mind for a long time.
The Terracares4Naija campaign will move to the next Lagos community on Saturday having visited Agege and Ikorodu.
