A non-governmental organization, Ezekiel’s Foundation, whose sundry benevolent exercises in recent times across the Udu Kingdom has been commended by all many has once again donated food items worth thousands of naira to the vulnerable particularly the physically challenged, widows, widowers, and elders among others in Aladja community, Udu local government area of Delta state.
Speaking during the presentation ceremony recently, Hon. Anthony Onokere and Comrade Samuwa Unuata, in their respective comments revealed that the items which were solely sponsored by the CEO of the Foundation, Mr. Ufuoma Frank Ezekiel (Unuata) was aimed at alleviating the sufferings of the elders and physically challenged persons in the community as a result of the lockdown occasioned by the Coronavirus pandemic.
They noted that the Foundation was touched by the pains being suffered by indigent members of the masses in the face of the lockdown hence the donation of the food items to help them while the lockdown lasted. The Foundation appealed to well meaning Nigerians to continue to support the vulnerable in the society even after the lockdown is lifted because, ‘’the post lockdown economy is going to be very challenging for many. It will take time for life to return to pre-covid-19 era when people could go anywhere, do business and maintain risk-free social and business life. People will continue to depend largely on support for one another for a long time after the whole global health challenge has been defeated’’, the Foundation stated.
Members of the Foundation moved to various households to deliver the food items which were packaged in cellophane bags and these include tubers of yam, rice, beans among others.
The beneficiaries from the 9 quarters of Aladja Community who basked in the euphoria of the surprise package, prayed God to bless the founder of the Foundation and his team as they also called on other sons and daughters of Aladja extraction to emulate Mr. Ufuoma Frank Ezekiel (Unuata)’s magnanimity. Speaking further the beneficiaries appealed to the general public to give their financial supports to Ezekiel’s Foundation to enable it carry out more charitable works as encapsulated in its aims and objectives.
It will be recalled that in the past, Ezekiel Foundation has rendered free medical services and also donated educational materials worth millions of naira to schools and the people of Udu local government area.
