Rivers Port donates to charity

The management of Rivers Port Complex has donated food and household items to some charity homes in Port Harcourt.

Rivers Port Manager, Mrs. Carolyn Akum Ufere, who led members of the port’s management staff on the visit to the homes, said the donation was part of the port’s corporate social responsibility.

While presenting food items and toiletries for the upkeep of inmates at the Home for the Elderly, Ufere said the visit and donation were necessitated by the need to identify with the less privileged.

She charged the keepers of the home to ensure that the donated items are used for the upkeep of the inmates.

She recalled that when Rivers Port celebrated its centenary last year, its workers had visited and encouraged the management of the home to continue with its selfless service.

Matron of the Home for the Elderly, Rev. Sister MaryJane Raphael Agubosi, who expressed happiness for the visit by the Rivers Port management, commended Ufere for her generosity.

She said the home supports 30 inmates.

The port workers also visited Port Harcourt Children’s Home, Borokiri, Port Harcourt, where they also donated foodstuff and household items.
