The people of Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State recently went home with some food items donated to them for Christmas celebration by their Illustrious Son Chief Patrick Ugboma, the founder of Patrick Sule Ugboma Foundation.
The bagged food items were handed over to the Presidents General of all the fifteenth Communities that make up the Council Area for onward distribution to the designated beneficiaries.
Our correspondent who covered the handover, reports that the event took place at Saint Patrick’s Catholic Parish, Ossomalla.
Each President General of the fifteen Communities was handed sixty bags of the palliatives for onward distribution to the aged and less privileged individuals in their areas.
Speaking to our correspondent in separate interviews, some of the Presidents General including retired Major Paul Izukanne of Atani, Prince Nwanze Afubera of Amiyi, Prince Lazarus Aguzieuzor of Umunnankwo and Deacon Cyril Ezekwere of Umuzu said they were happy and proud of the donor Chief Sir. Ugboma for his philanthropy as he usually extends his hands of fellowship to the indigents of various Communities in Ogbaru Council area.
They disclosed that the palliatives are for both Indigenes and non-indigenes of Ogbaru and prayed God to strengthen him while pledging judicious distribution of the palliatives.
Some of the beneficiaries including Mrs. Comfort Egeonu and Mr. Chukwuma Mbieri who said that they were filled with gratitude to God and the donor, prayed God to bless him abundantly.
