The Cross River Ministry of Environment in collaboration with Lions Club in Calabar have donated 1,500 bottles of alcohol based sanitizers, 1,200 liquid soap and 1,500 nose masks to residents in Calabar Municipality and Calabar South including the Nigeria Police and the Cross River Broadcasting Corporation.

Speaking, the State Commissioner for Environment, Hon. Mfon Bassey, said the donation became necessary following the scarcity and hike in price off the sanitizers and face masks.

He said that as a way of giving back to the society, the ministry had to collaborate with lions club with a view to donate the essential items and sensitise the people on the preventive measures of Covid-19.

Hon. Bassey said that the items were shared free of charge with a view to help residents in the state to adhere strictly to set guidelines on safety.

Representatives from Lions Club, Mr Michael Udosen and Anthony Doherty, said the gesture was carried out to give the people a sense of belonging to prevent them against the pandemic.

The essential items were shares to members of the public at Mbukpa, Atakpa police state, Area Command and the State Police Command.
