Here in Anambra, we have three wings; Nnewi, Onitsha and Awka”. She also thanked all the members who in spite of the economic challenges still decided to show love to children without mothers and prayed God to replenish their pockets. 

 Shortly after receiving gift items which included cartons of biscuits, soft drinks, noodles, tissue, clothing s among others, the Director of BNCCH, T.C Aguocha, represented by the manager of the motherless babies home, Mrs Vera Ugochukwu thanked the group for remembering and supporting them in taking good care of the children in the home, prayed God Almighty to continue to replenish their pockets and give them long life.

 Dr. Aguocha said, ” As you have decided to feed the less privileged children, you shall never lack in your respective families and when your children are in state of confusion, God will be there to help them out as you have put smiles on these children’s faces. Children are gifts from God, many of these children are people that will bring value and solutions to the society in future. We should help them to live and manifest talents deposited in them”.
