According to Mr. Alex Oragui, the love of their late mother for children as a care giver, which she demonstrated as a nurse and her commitment to the Red Cross during the civil war, inspired him into building the structure for the children of the parish.


Oragui charged Christians not to allow worldly and challenges of life make them to deviate from doing the work of God, urging them to give as led by the spirit.

The Archdeacon of Oba Archdeaconry, Venerable Dave Udezika represented by Reverend Christian Osagie and the wife of the donor, Mrs. Ijeoma Oragui, said that it is a blessing for the family to put up the structure for the church.
