The orphanage was rewarded with a year supply of Knorr seasoning cubes, LG refrigerator, food items from Shoprite, NeoChef microwave ovens, five-burner gas cookers amongst other appliances for a kitchen makeover.
Speaking during the visit to the orphanage, Brand Manager Knorr (Seasonings), Shadiat Shoyombo said, “At Knorr, our purpose is to enrich lives through flavour, hence our commitment to helping people, including children, get the most out of life. This is the reason we have been driving the battle against anaemia annually with our Knorr Force for Good initiative and why, today, we are donating useful day-to-day items to the children of Love Home Orphanage, with support from LG Electronics and Shoprite.”
Representatives of LG Electronics, Head of Corporate Marketing, Mr. Hari Elluru and Marketing Manager, Mr. Paul Mba along with Shoyombo joined Ijalana to interact with the children and staff of the orphanage as they present donations.
