NO fewer than 100 vulnerable families  received palliatives from a foundation, known as Afunwa Political Movement, in Nkwelle-Ezunaka, Oyi local Government Area, Anambra State, to assist them in cushioning the effect of coronavirus pandemic now ravaging the global world.

  The stimulus packages  include, bags of rice and sanitisers.

Extending the goodwill to the beneficiaries, founder of the foundation, Ifeanyi Chukwura recalled his life experience as one who grew from a poor background, hence, he realised the difficult situation of the downtrodden.

  “I can tell you authoritatively what the poor are going through because

  I was part of them. What the poor are going through was what I pass through in my early life that I will not want anybody to experience.”

  “Every December and Easter we give scholarship to the indigents and best students in Nkwelle-Ezunaka and Oyi. So it is not just vulnerables that I assist”.

  “I am not doing this in memory if my late father, Mr Francis

Chukwurah and late mother, Mrs Angelina Chukwurah, but because I have experienced what it means to be disadvantaged.

  Earlier in his speech, the President General of the community, Leonard Areh Onyenze, described the foundation founder as one loved by all in the community, hinting that, “he has been doing this not because of the covid-19”

  Also the former President General of the community, Elder Chris Eluemuno described him as a philanthropist to the core who liked assisting people.
