As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, John Holt PLC., recently donated cash to Lagos State Chapter of Nigeria Association of the Blind (NAB) for the commemoration of 2018 White-Cane Day.
NAB on Monday 15th October, 2018 joined the rest of the world to commemorate this year's International white-Cane and Safety Day through a walk to create awareness in the Ikorodu Local Government Area of Lagos.
Chairman of Lagos State Chapter, Babatunde Mohammed appealed to Federal Lawmakers to enact laws that will enforce the use of white cane by visually impaired citizens in the society and to provide protection for persons using the cane on the streets.
The Lagos State NAB Chairman regretted that getting sponsors for the body’s programs are always tough, saying this may be because the public feels it has nothing to gain from the gesture. He was full of praise for John Holt Plc, commending the company for its humanitarian gesture, while also asking for more support from the government, individuals and other corporate organizations.
