Committed to soothing the socio-economic impact of government’s directives to check the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the state, leading agri-tech startup, EZFarming, has donated relief materials to support the Osun State Government’s palliative programme.
The donation of the relief materials, which include rice, garri and instant noodles, is part of the start-up’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and a way of identifying with communities in the state, where it has stake of 2000 acres farm estate in the state.

The materials were received by a member of the Osun State COVID-19 Taskforce, Dr. Bode Olanipekun, on behalf of the state government, which has rolled out a comprehensive relief distribution exercise to ameliorate the suffering of citizens in rural and sub-urban and urban communities across the state.
Founder, EZFarming, Dr. Adewale Oparinde, who was represented by Chief Operating Officer (COO) of EZFarming, Rotimi Oyebode, said the firm is a public-spirited startup that would continue to prioritise the needs of its immediate community and not abandon them at the time of need.

According to him, we would continue to identify with the state and contribute our widow’s might in this time that the world has been brought to its knees by the coronavirus pandemic.
He said the donations are coming directly through the company and also through a group of friends in the United Kingdom known as Genuine Needs, to provide succour to people during the coronavirus pandemic.
He said, “We are committed to providing support for the people and it is heart-warming that the state government has a programme to do likewise. So, we decided to tap into the programme and contribute our quota to ensure that the people are well catered for this period.

“Our intervention work is coordinated in such a manner that it would get to the poorest of the poor. As much as we have donated directly to the state government, we are also picking up some individuals who have been adversely affected by the lockdown. There is a woman who fends for herself and two daughters, but get house cleaning work and was about committing suicide.

 

“We have risen to the occasion to provide support for her. This is among many others that we have undertaken to help. These are difficult times for people. I enjoin everyone to be their brothers’ keeper this period.”
