The Catholic Diocese of Nnewi has donated N2.2 million to victims of the August 6 gun attack on worshipers at St. Philip’s Catholic Church, Ozubulu, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra. The Bishop of the Diocese, Most Rev. Hilary Okeke, who announced the donation, said each of the 44 affected victims would get N50, 000 each.

Okeke while inaugurating the Ozubulu Casualties Welfare Committee said it will function to enable the church profile the victims, visit them at hospitals where they receive and attend to their needs more effectively. The bishop charged the committee to visit all the victims in different hospitals, know their needs with a view to offering a helping hand.

“Many people and groups in the church are helping the victims. These people eat and that is why we give them money. The families of the dead will not be forgotten,’’ the bishop said.

The mandate of the committee the Bishop said also includes ensuring that every help provided by groups and individuals were deposited into a central account, the Ozubulu Casualty Charity Fund. The bishop said the church was already receiving donations on behalf of the victims since it announced the support fund.
