Members of Edo Progressive Indigenes Association (EPIA) toured the city of Benin on Friday, 10th April 2020 to distribute cash, food and other palliatives to the poor, needy, aged, physically challenged and other vulnerable people.
About 7000 people were reached in the exercise.
According to the president, Dr Bishop Omogiade Edokpolo, the exercise is an ongoing one which they will try to sustain as donations continue to come.
The organisation also used the occasion to spread word about the dangers of not adhering to instruction regarding the Coronavirus. They therefore urged the general public to stay at home, and always wag their hands as directed by the World Health Organization.
