Chikki Foods Industries, the maker of Chikki instant noodles and Chip chips, has set up a helpline in honour of World Mental Health Day.
The special helpline will allow Nigerians around the nation to voice their concerns and give them a chance to express themselves to an anonymous operator without being judged or commented on.
The helpline is scheduled to launch by 9 am on Sunday, October 10th, 2021.
Mr Nnaemeka Mattew, Marketing Manager of Chikki Foods, says that the helpline is a place where people can share their problems without being judged.
He said: “Have you ever felt the need to just scream as loudly as you can- or talk to a stranger you never have to see again about your worries so that you feel a little lighter and unburdened?
Sometimes the world can be very overwhelming, especially with the pandemic and the constant increase in the prices of food products, and some people just need a good scream or someone to listen while they let it all out which is why we are setting up this helpline.
No comments. No judgement. Just an avenue for Nigerians to let out steam and hopefully get a new lease on life.”
The helpline with contact number +2348104981432 will be open to the public from 9 am – 7 pm on Sunday.
