Mouka Foam, a leading foam manufacturing company in Nigeria has demonstrated its commitment to a policy of touching the lives of Nigerians, as it recently donated some of its products to aÂ Lawyer and Businesswoman whose duplex was raised down in a mid morning inferno in Lagos. Mouka did this when the management of the company led by the Head of Marketing, Mr. Caesario de-Medeiros paid a sympathy visit to her house and donated Mouka foam mattresses and pillows as a mark of testimony of the companyâ€™s policy.
Mrs Okafor lost properties worth millions of Naira in the fire that gutted her house except her Bible and fire retardant Mouka orthopaedic foam. According to her, the fire started at about 11.30 am and all attempts to put out the fire failed. â€˜â€™I called the fire service but I was told that, there was no driver on ground to drive their truck. At the end of it all, only my Bible and the mattress were salvaged from the fire. It was really traumatic. But I thank God that no life was lost.â€™â€™ She said.
It was in the process of trying to replace the mattress that comes with a warranty that the company came to know of her plight and acted appropriately. Mrs Okafor said she was touched by the way the company handled the issue. She commended them not only for their prompt response, but in the way they went about it.
â€˜â€™They delivered the products right inside my bedrooms, I am touched.â€™â€™ A befuddled Mrs Okafor said.
De- Medeiros said at the presentation ceremony that, as a responsible corporate citizen, the company always reaches out to people in unfortunate circumstances irrespective of their social status in society. â€˜We always make it a point of duty to reach out to people in unfortunate circumstances – because we are a caring brand. Our business is anchored on a philosophy of not just making profit, but also impacting peoples lives in ways that are appropriate.â€™
He stressed that, when Mrs Okafor walked into Mouka office to have her mattress replaced, they were not sure why and after some enquiry they got to know the reason why. â€˜
The incident was a true testimony of the quality of Mouka products which is produced to world class standards. The testimony that Mrs Okafor gave is better than any amount of advertising any company can get.â€™ de- Medeiros affirmed.
The Marketing Manager promised both existing and potential Mouka customers that the company, apart from producing quality products, will not rest on its oars but will always look out for avenues to touch their lives in more ways than one. He reaffirmed the companyâ€™s resolve to be a corporate driver in the manufacturing sector of the Nigerian economy by providing employment to Nigerians and assisting the Government in its developmental efforts.
