Flood: MOMAN Gives Nigerian Red Cross Society N50 Million

The Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) has contributed N50 million to help communities throughout the nation that were impacted by floods.

This was stated in a statement made on Monday in Lagos by Clement Isong, the CEO of MOMAN.

Isong claimed that despite being a humanitarian catastrophe, the latest flooding did not seem to be receiving the attention it deserved.

He said the images of the utter damage in communities throughout Nigeria were horrifying and highlighted the need for corporate organisations to provide support.

“In previous emergencies such as COVID-19, Nigerians rallied around each other but with the floods, the rest of the world appears to be taking things more seriously than Nigeria is.

“It is sad that the flooding which I see as a humanitarian disaster is not treated with the seriousness it deserves.

Abubakar Kende, the secretary general of the Nigerian Red Cross Society, was overjoyed to receive the donation and was impressed by MOMAN's show of civic engagement.

According to Kende, the money will actually be utilised to lessen the consequences of the flooding.

Kende asserts that the Nigerian Red Cross Society has made significant progress and that accountability is its guiding principle.

“It is so gratifying in these times to meet an organisation that actually has the spirit of volunteerism and humanity embedded within its core.

“About two weeks ago, the Nigerian Red Cross Society launched an emergency appeal in order to raise 13 million Swiss Francs for the flood victims across Nigeria.

“These funds are targeted at supporting up to 500,000 displaced people and focus on the provision of basic food, health, care, water, sanitation, hygiene promotion, search and rescue.
