The Aliko Dangote Foundation has initiated the distribution of 10 kg bags of rice to 10,000 vulnerable individuals in Anambra State. This effort is part of the foundation’s broader national food intervention program, which aims to distribute one million 10kg bags of rice to vulnerable Nigerians across all thirty-six states.

Partnering with credible non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in various states, the foundation ensures transparent and verifiable distribution. In Anambra State, the Aliko Dangote Foundation has assigned the task of handling the distribution to Justice Development and Peace Caritas (JDPC), an NGO established by the Awka Catholic Diocese.

Reverend Father Levi Uko, the Executive Director of JDPC Awka Diocese, confirmed that JDPC was selected by the Aliko Dangote Foundation for the distribution following a rigorous screening process.

The distribution spans all twenty-one local government areas of Anambra State, with each community receiving fifty bags of 10 kg rice. To ensure accountability, JDPC engages presidents general of town unions to oversee distribution, requesting recipients to provide photographic evidence of receipt.

Moreover, the foundation, through JDPC, provides financial support to community leaders to facilitate the transportation of rice to various communities.

During the distribution exercise, community leaders such as Mr. Johnpaul Ezenwaka and Mr. Innocent Obiefuna expressed gratitude to Aliko Dangote for the timely intervention, emphasizing its significance amidst the prevailing economic challenges.

With the distribution of one million bags of rice to vulnerable households across Nigeria, the Aliko Dangote Foundation aims to make a tangible difference in the lives of those in greatest need.
