International Volunteering Day: Henkel Nigeria team visits children’s homes
Staff of Henkel Nigeria have used the opportunity of the 2020 United Nations International Volunteering Day to visit two children’s homes in the vicinity of the company’s Ibadan factory. These are His Heritage Home and Tabitha Home. His Heritage Home is a transitional and care shelter for orphans and vulnerable children, whilst the Tabitha Home is a formal care and transitional home for orphans and vulnerable children.
The visits were in line with Henkel’s recognition and support of voluntary employee engagement by way of caring for local communities.
WAW detergents, food materials, groceries and stationeries were donated to the children’s homes.
Aliyu Jibril, Human Resources Manager, Henkel Nigeria, who represented the Managing Director, Rajat Kapur said, “Last year was really tough for many Nigerians. Beyond the need to engage with our neighbours, Christmas is all about giving, hence, we have a responsibility to show how much we care for the most vulnerable amongst us, which are children.
By helping put smiles on their faces, we believe we are making a difference in their lives and giving them a reason to hope for a better tomorrow”.
In her response, Temilooluwa Moronkeji, Chief Executive Officer of His Heritage Homes, thanked the management of Henkel Nigeria for the kind gesture.
