The call on Ndi Anambra to support the programmes of the wife of the Anambra State Governor, Chief Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano, through her NGO, Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFE), has yielded results with the donation of 20 motorcycles and 20 gas cookers by a Philanthropist and Managing Director of Tona Geological Services, Chief Dr. Tony Anukwu, in support of the pet project. The motorcycles and gas cookers were recently presented to CAFE at the Governor’s Lodge Amawbia.
Receiving the items, Chief Mrs. Obiano expressed appreciation to Chief Anukwu and his wife for their continuous support and identification with CAFE. The obviously impressed governor's wife stated,
“I am impressed with what is happening here today. It is a confirmation that God loves Anambra State. This further confirms that my decision to register CAFE, an NGO that caters for the whole of the family is not in vain. The fact that philanthropists and our people are joining hands with us is a thing of joy that should be commended,” she said.
Chief Mrs. Obiano recalled that although “I have been doing selfless work before I became the Wife of the Governor, I sometimes get worried at the enormity of the task but I also believe that we have prominent sons and daughters of Anambra who are their brothers keepers like the Managing Director of Tona Geological Services, Mr Tony Anukwu, and his amiable wife. I thank them for their kind gesture.”
The wife of the Governor urged other philanthropists to emulate Chief Dr. Anukwu and join hands with CAFE to empower indigent women and widows and others in need to make the state better for all.
Speaking on their motivations for the donation, Chief Dr. Anukwu said they have followed closely the empowerment programme of the Wife of the Governor and decided to support her.
“We are here to identify with the wife of the governor for her continuous care for the less privileged and the indigent in support of the work of the governor. We have been monitoring CAFE programmes right from Lagos where she lived before joining her husband in the service of our people. My family and friends will continue to support CAFÉ,” he stated
Chief Dr. Anukwu also disclosed that a good friend, Mr. Charles after hearing what he is doing has pledged to donate generously to CAFE to enable the NGO empower many others in Anambra State. He urged others to emulate their gesture by contributing to the upkeep of the less privileged and partnering with CAFE.
