Anambra youths carpet critics on Mrs Obiano's abroad charity

By Okechukwu Onuegbu

The Anambra Youth Empowerment Initiative (AYEI), a Non Governmental Organisation has described critics of the wife of the governor of Anambra state, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano's charity works abroad as "enemies of progress and agents of darkness."

The group in a press statement shortly after visit to some hospitals and motherless babies home, including Teaching hospital, Awka and Nnewi respectively and Umunna motherless babies home, Onitsha said that anybody that speaks ill of the less privileged anywhere in the world or condemns the act of charity are just being mischievous.

Critics had while condemning Mrs Obiano's distribution of gift items to the homeless and less privileged in Houston, USA, argued that it was a misplaced priority since charity was said to begins at home.

But the convener and chairman of the Anambra Youth Empowerment Initiative, Hon Nduka Alor  said the Anambra first Lady deserves commendation rather than condemnation, as she had through her NGO, Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFE) impacted more lives positively than ever in the state.

According to him, "In Anambra state alone, there are over 27 beneficiaries of  CAFE indigent widows free house project and many ongoing in some towns like Agulu, Alor, Aguleri, Amichi, Nibo, Nnobi, Nri amongst others. Over 100 children and families have equally benefited and still benefiting from her free cleft/ palate surgery and others"

The convener therefore, urged citizens to always see good in any charity and avoid playing politics with people they are better than, adding that his NGO will not relent in touching lives in the state.
