Aliko Dangote Foundation Donates 30,000 Bags of Rice to Vulnerable Families in Niger State

By Abubakar Hassan

The Aliko Dangote Foundation has donated 30,000 bags of 10kg rice to vulnerable families in Niger State, as part of its efforts to alleviate the suffering of poor and vulnerable households in the state. 

The donation was made through the Arewa Development Support Initiative (ADSI), a non-governmental organization that provides humanitarian services across 19 Northern states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

According to Hajiya Halima U. Ndanusa, Niger State Coordinator of ADSI, the foundation found her organization worthy of coordinating the distribution of the rice in Niger State, with the support of other NGOs.

She explained that the economic situation in the country has made food the most basic need for many Nigerians, and the Aliko Dangote Foundation has contributed its quota towards reducing the hardship faced by vulnerable families.

The distribution of the rice has already covered 23 local governments in the state, with Chanchaga and Bosso local governments being the latest beneficiaries. Hajiya Halima Ndanusa appreciated the Aliko Dangote Foundation for the noble gesture and prayed for the foundation's continued blessing and strength to carry out more humanitarian activities.

Barr. Maryam Kolo, a permanent member of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and a critical stakeholder in Chanchaga local government, received and coordinated the distribution of the commodity for her local government. 

She appreciated the Aliko Dangote Foundation and ADSI for the gift, which she said will go a long way in cushioning the effect of hardship faced by poor and vulnerable households in terms of feeding. She assured the foundation that the items will only be given to those who actually need it.

The donation is part of the Aliko Dangote Foundation's efforts to support vulnerable families and reduce poverty in Nigeria. The foundation has been involved in various humanitarian activities across the country, including food donations, healthcare support, and education initiatives.
