It was a joyful New Year for the Widows and less privileged in Enugu Ezike as Dr. Mrs. Nkechi Ayogu Eze, the wife of Sen. Ayogu Eze through the Oak of Hope Foundation restored their hope for a better life.
The Oak of Hope Foundation which is owned by the Dr. Mrs. Nkechi Ayogu Eze and co-funded by her husband, focuses on helping the widows and the less privileged in the society by offering them hope for a better life and helping them to achieve their dreams.
It was a sight to behold on new year day as both the beneficiaries of the Oak of Hope Foundations and the intending beneficiaries flooded the House of the Senator and were treated to sumptuous dishes after which they were gifted items such as wrappers, rice, vegetable Oil, etc.
The beneficiaries who stayed on to celebrate the New Year with the Senator whom they testified to have been good to them before, during and after their time in government, were glad and full of prayers for the Senator and his wife.
Speaking to Daily Star Online News , the Founder of Oak of Hope Foundation, Mrs. Nkechi Ayogu Eze said the foundation was founded out of her love for the downtrodden and her passion to give them hope for a better life.
“We started this foundation long before we found ourselves in government and have continued since then not minding the meagre resources available to us because the foundation is funded through my personal savings and support from my husband”, she said.
Speaking on the achievements of the Foundation so far, She mentioned several individuals who have been trained upto University level by the foundation and sent abroad, some of which included some blind young men who were sent to Canada after their studies.
She stated that they have never found it worthy to publicize the good works of the organization because they believe it’s an act of kindness which they shouldn’t receive praises for.
The Celebration went on after the Senator cut the new year cake as they prayed and partied to mark remarkable new year.
