Worried by the prevalence of hunger and poverty in the streets of Anambra State, Favour Ejike a native of Akaboukwu in Uruagu Nnewi and an undergraduate student of Law in Dim Odumegwu University Igbariam Anambra State is set to feed beggars on the street of Anambra State.
Favour Ejike who said she drew her inspiration from the biblical injunction which says “Whosoever that is generous to the poor lends to the lord and he shall repay him for his deeds”
Through her Non-Governmental Organization called Favour Sams Foundation, she will be on the streets of Nnewi, Onitsha and Awka on 18th November 2018 to feed at least 500 beggars and the less-privileged.
In an interview, she stated that the initiative was born out of the need to help the poor, challenged and needy women and struggling families in the society through health advocacy, empowerment and support programs and health and food outreach programs.
She went further to call on government and other individuals especially those who are better placed to develop the habit of giving back to the society, noting that such drive we make our society a better place to live.
Favour Ejike who is also a model, assured that the campaign would be sustained and expanded to other localities in the state and beyond only with the help of contributions of individuals, industries and corporate institutions.
The foundation is currently receiving the support of Prime Specialist Hospital Awka, Chumek Hospital Awka, Skytour oil and lubricants, vine signatures, Havana bakery and Tina Events.
