“When you listen to testimonials of recipients on the HelpNow platform, you appreciate the impact of the pandemic in the lives of the less fortunate amongst us. Many are unable to provide food for themselves and their families. We thank Nigerians for extending a helping hand and donating to assist many of their fellow citizens. It’s important that we keep the moment and widen the net of people we can reach to ensure that less people go to bed hungry. I believe that the HelpNow and NACK partnership will be instrumental in helping us reach reach our goal”.
