The less privileged in Plateau State North-Central Nigeria, were elated yesterday when a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), under the aegis of Paradise Mission for Widows and Teenage girls shared the love of Christmas with them.
The indigents drawn from the localities of the poorest of poor, eat, drank, got medical items, wrappers and cash from the philanthropist, Amb. Jane Egbo, who is in partnership with Global Business Round Table (WOC), South Africa, also known as Women of Character South Africa.
The gesture tagged, “Showers of Hope Charity Outreach” was coined out of the spirit of Christmas to love and care for those who cannot afford a meal or have access to medicals, Egbo said while answering questions from our correspondent.
According to her, the NGO was formed to cater to the underprivileged, noting that plans were underway by the organisation to expand its humanitarian activities beyond the donation of items.
Egbo further stated that members of the NGO would continue to pool their resources together with the sole aim of making life more meaningful for not only the windows, but other downtrodden members in the society.
She added that the outreach has given indigents self confidence and a sense of belonging in line with the injunction of Jesus Christ.
She said that the organisation in the past had paid the medical bills of some orphans and vulnerable children, who were unable to pay for health services as well as ensured continuous treatment for persons suffering from different ailments.
Egbo called on well-meaning Nigerians to continue to support orphans and the less privileged in the society by showing them love, kindness, and care.
