Over 2,000 residents in Lekki area of Lagos, Ikota and Ajah communities, benefitted from the evangelisation and generous gesture of the Ladies of St. Mulumba Nigeria, Lekki-Sub Council at the weekend.
Food, water, bibles, rosaries, catechism books and other items worth over a million naira were distributed freely to excited individuals that included children, women, widows and the less privileged.
According to the President of the group, Lady Nnenne Ukairo, Ladies of St Mulumba are wives of Knights of St Mulumba, Nigeria, an honored Order in the Catholic Church, and charity outreach is one of the Key roles of the Order.
The Chairperson of the Evangelization planning committee, Lady Ifeoma Okocha-Ojeah, told Sunday Vanguard that the gesture is a product of what Jesus admonished Christians to do in Mathew 28v19 and 20, to make disciples of people of all the nations and teaching them to understand the commandments of God.
The Vice President of the Ladies of St Mulumba, Lekki Sub Council, Lady Theresa Chiejina who was visibly excited, said “I feel happy and excited at our experience today. I appreciate all our members for finding time from their busy schedules to reach out to others.
