A non-governmental organisation, NGO, Greg Ikaba Ngaji Foundation, has provided succour for orphans in Calabar with relief materials. In a bid to show compassion towards the less privileged, the Foundation, donated food items and materials to orphanage home; Good Shepherd Home, Bateba, Calabar.
Fielding questions from journalists on what prompted him to make kind donations to the orphanage home, the Founder, Hon Jude Ogbeche Ngaji , said the foundation was moved with compassion as to the lack of love extended towards orphanage homes and orphans generally. This was as he called on well-meaning Nigerians to join the race in providing solace and succour for several millions of orphans in Nigeria.
He said, “We’ve been in existence since 2004, what we do basically is to help the less privileged, widows and orphans. Today, we decided to celebrate it with the people of Good Shepherd Orphanage Home, Bateba , Calabar.
Represented by Hon Godwin Igelle and Mr Solomon Ogar , Hon. Ngaji said what really prompted him was that he saw that a lot of people don’t extend love to orphans and he thought it was high time to create awareness and support them with the little way they can. They can be supported in cash or in kind.
“Greg Ikaba Ngaji Foundation is just trying to call out people in their own space to support these orphans because they didn’t get to this stage by their own doing, we either know it is about negligence, parents death poverty or disease that has rendered them, orphans. In our own little space, let’s render help to them.
“Helping the less privileged should be the work of both the government and individuals. Yes, the government has a part to play, we also as individuals have a part to play. Government can’t do everything but they need to also come out and support the orphans. But the majority, I think Nigerians also ought to support these children.
On her part, the officer-in-charge of the Good Shepherd Orphanage Homes, appreciated the effort of the Foundation in showing love and kindness.
Sh said, “Today we are so excited. We want to thank God for the foundation that have come to help us with what we do by supporting us in diverse areas today. I’m happy about everything.”
In the same vein, she called on Nigerians to emulate what they (Greg Ikaba Ngaji Foundation) did by helping the orphanage homes. “In anyway you can, help to add to the value of lives and rekindle hope to the hopeless in Nigeria.
