ONITSHAâ€” Sucour yesterday came the way of more than 300 Biafra war victims and lepers at Oji Rehabilitation Centre,ORC, when
Dr. Andy Uba Foundation donated cash, food items and toiletries to them.
Speaking while making the donation, the national Coordinator of the Foundation and a lawmaker in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Prince Ebere Ezechukwu, said Uba was visiting the place for the fifth time to make sure that they were given a sense of belonging.
He said the gesture was also part of the Foundationâ€™s promise to put smiles on the faces of the needy both at the urban and the rural areas based on their slogan that givers never lack.
Ezechukwu said the Foundation was not instituted by Uba for political reasons, but to continue to empower the youths and most importantly, the needy in the society.
â€œThe Foundation was not put in place by Dr Andy Uba, for politics. Anybody who knows the young man will testify that God created him to help the people, especially the indigent ones amongst us. I tell you that God will continue to support him in life,â€ he said.
