Ondo NYSC Donates Facemasks, Sanitisers, Food Items to Motherless Homes, Others
The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, have distributed over two thousand facemasks to residents of Ondo state to stop the spread of Covid-19 and in commemoration of the 47th anniversary of the scheme.
The scheme also donated food items to major motherless homes in the state capital to celebrate the day with a theme: “Deepening the Impact of the National Service through Innovations”.
Distributing the items to the people during a mini rally in Akure, the state coordinator of NYSC, Mrs Grace Akpabio said, since the outbreak of Covid-19, corps members had been working tirelessly to ensure that facemasks, hand sanitisers and other items were produced in mass for the benefit of the people.
Mrs Akpabio pointed out that the scheme would not relent in sensitizing people of the grassroots on the need to take precautions against the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.
She, however, urged corps members and other Nigerians to always follow the rules of using a facemask and desist from acts that could endanger others at this crucial period.
