In fulfilling its promise to help fight the COVID 19 pandemic, PZ Cussons Foundation has donated soaps to the Lagos State Ministry of Health to help curb the spread of virus in the state.

The permanent secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Dr Olusegun Ogboye received this contribution.

The Foundation had previously donated soaps to over 40,000 people in six major cities across Nigeria in collaboration with the Foundation for Refugee Economic Empowerment (FREE), a UK and Nigerian Charity that aims to provide high quality, timely, accountable, and inclusive humanitarian assistance to displaced persons towards enabling them to return to normal and sustainable productive lives.

In a statement by the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Foundation, Professor Eyitayo Lambo, “After learning that one of the simplest ways to stay protected against the coronavirus is by consistent hand washing with soap, we made a commitment to support the effort of government in its fight against the spread of the virus. We started with the north as there were quite a number of vulnerable persons there.

We have now extended similar support to Lagos seeing how we have recently experienced a surge in the number of cases in the state.”
