In line with the organisations objectives and social responsibility guidelines as a charitable entity, RantHQ team has been feeding slected communities in Lagos state.
The feeding programme which commenced on April 18, 2020 has attempted to palliate the negative impacts of the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Widows, women & mothers were the recipients on April 18. Today, April 25, 2020, the team focused on children in one of the communities in Mende, Maryland, Lagos State.
In a message shared by the founder, Suzan Ade-Coker, she thanked the RantHQ platform for the opportunity given to touch the lives of these people who are in need. It is not about the food items but the hoy shared, the hope given and the love felt that matters the most.
She went further to state that this new outing was an improvement on the previous outreach considering the health and safety of everyone.
She also explained that the team while engaging the community, ensured that social distancing was enforced.
She commended the community for their cooperation and understanding. She also said the team spoke with some of the adults in the community and asked how they are coping during this lockdown.
From the photos attached to the message by the founder, the children could be seen to be so excited as well as their parents.
The RantHQ team is, however, not resting on it oars, as the team will be going round to more communities in Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan, Ogun, Uyo, Minna, Bauchi, Jos, Owerri, Aba, Rivers and some other cities in the country.
The team is not only providing foods as it will be carrying out sensitisation and awareness campaigns in communities visited in the future.
The team will also be sharing protective masks to people during this period, in order, to protect people from contracting the virus.
Together we can beat this pandemic and together we will. Stay safe and stay well!.
