Imo State: Mrs Ebere Ihedioha, Professor Viola Onwuliri Swoop in to Give Succour to Crippled Orphans
With the facilitation of Mbaise Policy Roundtable (MPR), help has come for poor crippled orphan boys in Mbaise, Imo State. The Imo State First Lady Her Excellency Ebere Ihedioha and the Imo State Commissioner for Education Professor Viola Onwuliri have promptly responded to bring hope to a seemingly hopeless situation, a few days ago. In the past few days the social media was stunned by reports of a poor family in Ekwereazu Town, Mbaise, where two boys who were born crippled, lost their caretaker and mother to stroke. Their care reverted to their grandmother, who has been unable to meet the physical demands of moving the kids around to eat, bath, urinate, defecate, thus creating very poor hygienic environment. The very poor socioeconomic status of the family compounds ability to provide food, medicine and proper healthcare for the crippled orphans and their grandmother.
The incredible mothers, Her Excellency Mrs Ebere Ihedioha and Imo State Education Czar, swung into action immediately on becoming aware of this situation! The First Lady sent her aides to properly assess the situation and report to her, while as follow up to the First Lady’s gestures and humanity, Professor Onwuliri brought them food and had fuller private discussions with the Traditional Ruler and others on anticipated plan of action to support the family. While all these were raging some member of the MPR had already pledged N100K to support the crippled orphan’s immediate needs. On MPR’s interest in this matter Professor Eddie Oparaoji, the MPR Moderator said “We are a policy group, we advocate policies for the needy and living. We may not solve all problems, but be rest assured we will leave no stones unturned to find help for any of our own in need”.
It would be recalled that similar acts of human kindness was recently displayed by these two amazing public figures, when they came to rescue of a distressed widow, Mrs Maria Madu, who was rendered homeless when she escaped unhurt, following collapse of her house during a torrential rainfall.
The both SuperWomen have since facilitated construction of a new 3 bedroom house for Mrs Madu to be completed and handed over before Christmas, 2019.
