The wife of Governor of Anambra State, Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano, has said her NGO; Caring Family Enhancement Initiative, (CAFE) will not hold back in giving succour to the downtrodden in society.
She stated this at Awka North and Njikoka Local Government Councils, during her visits of the areas, in continuation of her 2019 tour to 21 council areas of the state.
According to her, CAFE programmes are designed to accommodate every person in vast skill areas including computer and phone repair, sewing, confectionery, beauty therapy, hair making and head-tie designs, with each trainee receiving start-up gadgets and cash at the end of the intensive month-long training.
Mrs. Obiano said it was important for women and youths, especially the unemployed and indigent to enlist into the programmes, and learn a skill that will put food on their tables, stand them on their feet, and pull them out of abject poverty.
She also counseled parents on the import of genotype tests before marriage, and urged them to ensure that their children who intend to enter into marriages undergo tests as their own account towards the elimination of sickle cell anaemia in Anambra State.
The member representing Awka North at the Anambra State House of Assembly, Honourable John Nwokoye, his Njikoka l and ll counterparts, Honourable Timothy Ifedioramma and Honourable Pete Ibida both of whom pledged to enrol one hundred and fifty people into the Anambra State Health Insurance Scheme, said they each owe consolidation to the fruits of CAFE’s generosity.
Earlier in their separate addresses, Transition Committee Chairman of Awka North Local Government, Mr. Ferdinand Onwuje, who donated household materials to support CAFE’s works, and his Njikoka counterpart, Chief George Ozo, who also supported with hairdressing machines, said the Governor’s Wife has taken her charity beyond politics; a gesture that speaks volumes about her innermost character as a core humanitarian.
The trademark of her visits, Mrs. Obiano gave out bags of rice, money and school wares to widows, disabled, aged and children from the s16 communities that make up the two local government areas.
