Dufil Prima, makers of Nigeria’s leading noodles, Indomie Instant Noodles, on Monday donated cartons of the product to three orphanages in Lagos. The donations were part of activities to mark this year’s Valentine Day celebrations. The firm said donating to orphanage homes has become a tradition to it as it continues to enable orphaned children relish the superior taste of Indomie Instant Noodles.
The team paid a visit to the Nigerian Red Cross Motherless & Abandoned Babies Home, Heritage Homes Orphanage and Love Home Orphanage. Expressing delight and appreciation at the occasion, Branch Secretary, Nigerian Red Cross, Lagos, Mr Olakunle Lasisi, thanked Dufil Prima for the gesture. According to Lasisi; “We appreciate what Dufil Prima has done in the lives of these children by extending love to the underprivileged. As parents, we know that if Indomie is missing in the home, the home is really not the same, because Indomie is the preferred meal for children.”
Speaking on behalf of Dufil Prima, Group Corporate Communications & Events Manager, Tope Ashiwaju said: “Valentine is a period of sharing and giving to those who may not be able to reciprocate the gesture. To children, Indomie is not just a meal, it represents a symbol of the love their parents have for them and an incentive that spurs them to do well in many areas of their lives.
