Chief Dr. Emeka Kalu, the President of the ECK Foundation, has given food, cash, and other palliative items to widows, vulnerable people, and the elderly in Bende communities as a way to lessen the immediate biting effects of the economic downturn that Nigerians are experiencing. Kalu is determined to extending efforts to have a positive impact on the lives of people.
Remember that earlier, as a way to keep the youth occupied and away from crime by getting them focused on a price throughout this period, the US-based engineer, politician, and grassroots politician created a veritable platform to discover Youths for sponsorship through a football tournament among communities of Bende Local Government with a price tag of N1,000,000.00 (one million Naira).
On the other side, Chief Kalu has funded the tuition for indigent students to support their education through the ECK Foundation scholarship programme. His recognition for these and other actions has earned him the title “Okpata Ozuora 1 Na Nibo,” which will be bestowed upon him on December 26, 2023, in Anambra State.
The more than 80 recipients of the food supplies, which included more than 80 10.3 kilogramme bags of rice and a N5000 cash token apiece, gave thanks to God for utilising the ECK Foundation and its President to brighten their holiday season.
Mrs. Nwakaego Sunday expressed her gratitude for the gift, calling it a pleasant surprise. She also thanked Chief Dr. Emeka Kalu, the sponsor, and wished for continued guidance and protection in all of his endeavours, as well as blessings that would bring even more smiles to the widows’ faces.
Mrs. Ngozi Godwin, who accepted the gift on behalf of her ailing mother, expressed gratitude to God for using Chief Dr. Kalu to make the lives of women and the weaker members of the community happy. She prayed for additional blessings for the Chief.
The mothers, who were obviously thrilled, congratulated the sponsor and praised the organisers for conducting the exercise in an open and transparent manner to the glory of God. Their unending prayers, dances, and expressions of gratitude were among the event’s highlights.
