“When the coronavirus became a global pandemic, our foundation was the first to initiate a health awareness for our people in Anambra.

“We shared thousands of bottles of hand sanitisers, facemasks, food palliatives, and public health programmes in response to COVID-19.

“We later launched Walk4Health to step up our health intervention. Our first event was in Awka, the second in Onitsha, and now we are moving to Nnewi to ensure that every part of Anambra partakes in this growing health movement.
