Nunu supports Down Syndrome Foundation | Encourages Mothers to Fortify Kids with Milk for Adequate Mental Growth




As the world celebrates the Down syndrome awareness week, Nutricima Limited, makers of premium Nunu milk brand has once again demonstrated its commitment to creating awareness for Down syndrome in Nigeria. This year’s theme tagged ‘Accept, Educate, Inspire‘ is in line with Nunu’s “Grow everyday” campaign.

Over the years, Nunu has been at the forefront of good nutrition and nourishment for Nigerian children while also advocating effective physical and mental growth associated with their everyday development.

Speaking at a meeting with members of the Down Syndrome Foundation of Nigeria in Lagos, Category Marketing Manager Charity Adeniji, said the physical and mental growth of children in Nigeria, including those affected by Down Syndrome, is dear to the brand; hence the continuous support they have given to the foundation over the years.

At Nutricima, we are constantly looking for credible platforms through which we can showcase our excellent corporate values, and our ‘Grow Everyday’ campaign is one of such. We recognize that every child has the right to be properly developed in their journey to adulthood, and it is to this end that Nunu has been supporting the Down Syndrome Foundation, and this year is no exception. We will continue to show our friends in the foundation that we are a brand that cares; despite their challenges, we are committed to ensuring that they grow healthily every day” Charity Adeniji said.

In the spirit of accepting, educating and learning, the brand has donated a desktop computer as a teaching aid for the children at the Foundation with the hope of assisting them to be computer literate.

The world has gone digital, enabled by the advancement in computer technology. Our friends in the Foundation cannot be left out on this global trend. They are very intelligent children, whose daily growth has been consistently supported by the nourishment provided by Nunu milk. With this computer, we are sure they will further be exposed to the digital world, exploring and exhibiting their potentials. We believe that these children should not be discriminated as they constitute a vital part of the society” Charity explained.

Charity Adeniji also encouraged mothers to fortify their kids with the nourishment that Nunu milk provides. “Studies have shown that most Nigerian kids are deficient in iron and zinc and vitamins like B2 which ensures the formation of strong bones and teeth. Nunu contains all these essential vitamins and has been specially formulated to enable children grow everyday”.

In her comment, Rose Mordi, President, Down Syndrome Foundation of Nigeria, expressed her gratitude to Nutricima for their support with a promise to ensure the computer donated will be used to advance the knowledge of the children.

We appreciate Nutricima for this kind gesture. Essential nutrients are vital to the growth of any child and from all available evidences; Nunu milk provides a large part of these essential nutrients. With the computer and the ever refreshing Nunu milk available for our children, we are sure of producing intelligent children who are computer literate, and can hold their own anywhere in the world.” Mordi enthused.

Until recently, children with Down syndrome face tough challenges like stigmatization which affects their relationship and growth in life. However, with the support of brands like Nunu through their “Grow everyday” campaign the awareness is getting better.

    Thought the foundation is doing something nice, but down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder (Trisomy 18) so drinking milk is not going to decrease a chance of mental retardation. Is there a research that supports that?

    False advertising! Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder and no amount of milk will prevent it! They need to stop this deceptive promotion abeg. Milk does not help with mental health either!

    This why it is not good to attend night school! Did the post say anything about preventing Down Syndrome with milk?. Just a simple advise to Mothers from the brand. You guys are talking about science when obviously you lack understanding!
