(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Women in Umuogbu village, Awka in Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State, were lucky beneficiaries of about 700 bags of rice, courtesy of a United States of America (USA) based businessman, Chibueze Ezenagu, who hails from the area.
According to the philantropist, the distribution of the palliatives was his contribution to the alleviation of hunger in the country which had ravaged many Nigerian homes.
“This one is special to me because we are celebrating Christmas and New Year. The women deserve happiness too. Instead of going to the club, I considered it better to use the money to procure these bags of rice for the women.
“This is my second time of doing this here but I have also done this in other places. “The palliatives are just to support the women. Things are very hard in Nigeria now. There is no food, no money. A lot of people are hungry. So, this is just to support them. Some of them have young children.
“We also have other things coming up like going back to school programme and everything. Here, we have at least 700 bags of rice for all the women in Umuogbu village. Everybody has to get one bag of 10kg.
The Chibueze Ezenagu Foundation is a humanitarian organization that is committed to empowering women, youths and children. It is focused on promoting education and improving standards of living, It was founded in 2019.
