EXCLUSIVE: NGO Takes Free Meal To Catholic Church Community In Enugu


*Feeds Dozens Of Less Privileged, Vulnerable

FROM IGNATIUS OKPARA, Enugu – South Saharan Social Development Organization, (SSSDO),a non governmental organization NGO, Monday took its monthly free meal prgramme to a Catholic church community in Enugu, where scores of less privileged children and vulnerable persons were fed lavishly.

The monthly event, tagged “meals on Wheels” according to the Deputy programme Manager of the organization, Febechi Maduko,is part of her humanitarian services to the society.   Speaking with African Examiner shortly at the end of the exercise which took place at Holy Trinity Catholic church, Independence layout, Enugu, Maduko, stated that the NGO is concerned about issues relating to women, and children, including the vulnerable in the land.

She explained that the free meal prgramme started by  SSSDO some years ago, with the support of an Enugu based firm, Fit Consult, was born out of the fact that so many people do go to bed without food, due to poverty.   Since the inception of the programme she said, over 5,ooo less privileged and vulnerable people have been fed across Enugu state, assuring that the exercise will continue next month.

She disclosed that “Since  its inception  in  2001, SSSDO  had become a viable  platform  for  many  young women and men  to learn about, and explore their femininity  and  masculinity in a non-destructive,  mutually reinforcing and respectful  manner that empowers them  to  exploit their  full citizenship.

Chairman of Charity and Welfare Committee of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Mr. Vincent Dim, in his remarks had applauded SSSDO, for the gesture, saying it falls in line with the church’s existing welfare programme for the less privileged in its fold and larger society.  Some of the beneficiaries of the free food who also spoke to our Correspondent, thanked the NGO for remembering the poor in the society.

A 16 year old girl, Ebere Oko, and Benjamin Okechukwu, who responded on behalf of others, had prayed God to continue to strengthen the NGO in discharging its humanitarian services to mankind, especially the vulnerable in the society state and beyond.
