IN RESPONSE to the clarion calls for public-spirited individuals to reach out to the needy in their communities, Anambra State Commissioner for Women and Children Affairs, Ndidi Mezue has reached out to the elderly, orphans, the sick and indigent families at Ozubulu over the weekend.

  Speaking in an interview, Lady Mezue raised a message of hope to her people, urging them to “be hopeful, prayerful and positive that this pandemic must come to an end someday and life will return to normal”.

She stressed the need for people to make use of nose masks when stepping out from their homes, as well as practice regular hand washing under running water.

  The commissioner impressed on them the need to keep their sanitisers handy and maintaining social distancing. “Stay at home and stay safe”.

She also enjoined them to shun fake news and misleading information but rather adhere strictly to the information made available by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the government and other approved reliable media sources.

“My main motive for this action is just to reach out to my people, especially the elderly and the women to help reduce the harsh effects of hunger in various homes in my own little way.

“It’s never enough,” Mezue said.

No fewer than 50 families benefited from Lady Mezue’s kind gesture as each family received a carton of noodles, three paint buckets of rice, two tins of tomatoes, a loaf of bread, a handful of onions, some toilet soaps and undisclosed cash gifts.
