Electronic company, LG has launched a free laundry services scheme in Benin, the capital city of Edo state.
Head of Corporate Marketing Division of the company, West African operations, Hari Ellurru, made this known on Wednesday. He said over 25,000 families had benefitted from the scheme in Lagos since it was started in 2018.
He said, “The major objective is to help the people who are in need and to improve their hygiene. That is why we have come up with this. The machines can serve up to three years and after that we will renovate it.
“We started the programme in the year 2018 in Lagos and we have seen the positive result and then we expanded to Port Harcourt as well as Kano. We now have Benin City and I can say that we have washed 300,000 clothes with 25,000 families benefiting.
“This can serve forty families in a day. It can wash up to 500 clothes per day. We have invested a lot in setting up the laundry and this will serve for a long time.
“We have made this available to direct users at no cost to them whilst we wash and dry their clothes within 24 hours when they drop off. Hopefully, those who benefit will become our customers in the future.”
