Lagos, Nigeria; 10 th January, 2016: Residents of the Ilaje community in Costain area of Lagos

state have hailed leading telecommunication services provider, Airtel Nigeria for its efforts

in the control and prevention of HIV/AIDS in the area.

This commendation was made by the residents in December 2016 when the telco rolled out

its HIV/AIDS awareness campaign outreach in the area.

Airtel Nigeria in partnership with the Lagos State AIDS Control Agency (LSACA) embarked on

a community-wide awareness campaign in Ilaje to sensitize the residents and educate them

on HIV/AIDS, provide free testing and counselling as well as distribute medications and relief

materials to members of the community.

With over 80 testers and counsellors on hand to attend to the community, the elated

residents turned out en masse to benefit from this awareness campaign which is aimed at

preserving the lives of members of the community.

Lanre Babalola, a resident of Ilaje community hailed the smartphone network for

remembering his community. “I am very happy that Airtel is in our community today

because it feels good to be giving service to a community that is less serviced. Things like

this rarely happen for us here and today Airtel has put a smile on our faces”.

Another resident Bishop Okoro said “I love Airtel because they have remembered little

people like us who live in this area. We at Ilaje are usually forgotten but today a large

corporate organisation like Airtel Nigeria has remembered us”.

Also speaking at the event, the Baale of Ilaje community, Chief Oladipupo Arowojolu noted

that the community has a health challenge and Airtel in partnership with LSACA have come

to their aid. Arowojolu said “Health is wealth and with this HIV/AIDS awareness we are

given a chance at a better and healthier life. With Airtel’s help, Ilaje and Otubara community

will pursue good health in order to preserve the lives of members of our community”.

As a reputable corporate organisation, Airtel Nigeria is committed to improving the lives of

Nigerians by creating a better, healthier and more prosperous society, where everyone will

be treated equally as well as respected irrespective of their status, social class and location.
