Over two hundred households have benefited from food distribution made by a philanthropist in Isuofia community in Aguata local Government area of Anambra State.
The items which include Onions, tubbers of yam, Beans, cartons of Noddles, and face masks were donated by the President General Of Isuofia, Mr Jude Okeke.
Mr Jude Said the gesture which was meant for the less privileged and vulnerable ones was to cushion the impact of the Novel Coronavirus on the people.
He said that the items were fully handed over to a Non Governmental Organisation, Zaram Life Foundation , to ensure the raw foods were evenly distributed to the right people who are in dire need for it.
In an interview, the Chief Executive of Zaram Life Foundation , Eucheria Onyemobi Said the relief materials no doubt would go a long way as many indigent ones in the community really needed help and attention.
She regretted the level of vulnerable persons in the area and called on other wealthy individuals to remember such persons especially during this Covid 19 Pandemic.
“We made sure we visited the entire villages in Isuofia within the two days we spent there. The distribution was really an eye opener to Zaram Life Foundation as we met so many vulnerable persons who do not have what to eat especially during this pandemic period. I encourage the wealthy ones to always make sure whatever they have for the poor gets to them through a proper channel.”
Some of the beneficiaries including Mr Paul Odilichukwu Okoli thanked the President General of Isuofia for remembering them and prayed God to continue to bring peace to the community through his leadership.
The Vulnerable ones including a one hundred and six year old man , also commended Zaram Life Foundation for making sure that what was meant for them got to the people without any story of diversion or shortage.
