Amawbia (Awka South LGA)-Amawbia philanthropist, Mr Uchenna Nwofor has donated 100 bags of 10kg rice to some vulnerable, particularly widows in Amawbia Community.
“This is aimed at assisting the Town Union in ameliorating the sufferings of this group during this COVID-19 pandemic,’’ Mr Nwofor said during the sharing of the donation at Amawbia.
“I know what it means to be in difficulty, remembering what I went through as an orphan before attaining this present position in life.
“I imagine the hardships that our indigent widows may be passing through, especially in this COVID-19 period.
“So, I heed to the clarion call by the President-General to send relief material to the vulnerable widows no matter how small.’’
The donor was represented by his wife Mrs Edith Nwofor, who solicited for prayers for God’s continued blessings on her family, praying early end to the pandemic.
“We must all look up God at this time,’’ she stressed.
President-General, Mr Ebele Nwufo, while commending the donor for being patriotic, described him as `benevolent and hospitable’.
Mr Nwufo prayed for upliftment of the donor, while emphasising that COVID-19 was real and beyond technology.
“Everyone needs to be cautious and do the needful to contain the virus. The increasing number of cases on daily basis shows that one needs to be extremely careful.”
He, however, appealed to people to stop posting fake and unverified, stories.
According to him the state government is doing everything within its reach to cushion the COVID-19 effects.
“Even though the lockdown has been eased, one will not need to move about aimlessly. Adhere to precautionary measures reeled out by the state government.
“Practice good hygiene as it will save our lives. Beware, Coronavirus is real and on the increase,’’ PG pointed out.
Mr Nwufo enjoined all to go back to local foods, fruits and vegetables for improved immune system, so as to be able to combat the virus.
One of the beneficiaries, Mrs Agnes Nwoye thanked the donor for his large heart, praying God to continue to sustain him and his family.
