Nkechi Ikpeazu lifts widows, the blind with houses
SIX lucky indigent widows and a blind man in Abia State have become owners of a bungalow each after they were handed over to them by the Vicar Hope Foundation, a pet project of the state governor’s wife, Mrs. Nkechi Ikpeazu.
The beneficiaries include 63-year-old Mrs. Happiness Nweke of Umuosu village, 37-year- old Mrs. Ngozi Nwaze Nwachukwu of Umugbugo Etili Ohanze, 34-year-old Mrs. Ahaoma Nkuba from Itungwa Umuobiakwa, 68-year-old Mrs. Oluchi Anyanwu, 68-year-old Mr. Isaac Otuji of Umulelu Itungwa and Mrs. Lovina Emenike from Avonkwu Ibeku.
While handing over the houses to them, Mrs. Ikpeazu disclosed that the project was in line with her passion towards assisting and bringing succour to indigent widows and other less privileged persons in society.
“This is in line with my covenant with God and the objective of my pet project, which would complement that of government in providing succour to this class of people, who have no one to help them have a decent accommodation”.
Commending those she said contributed funds towards the buildings through her foundation, the governor’s wife solicited more assistance to enable the foundation ameliorate the plight of more widows and other vulnerable persons.
The spokesperson for the beneficiaries, Mrs. Happiness Nweke, thanked the governor’s wife for her generosity and prayed for God to protect and reward her for her selfless service to humanity.
