Community Hails Airtel Nigeria for Support against HIV/AIDS …As Airtel conducts free tests and counselling for Nigerians
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.
