”You need to choose what you want to be in life and God will bless you. I chose the life of Job in the Bible. Job is a man who said he is the eyes of the blind. He was a foot to the lame. In Job 29 from verse 10, Job said he was the voice the voiceless. We are here to declare that the Lord is good, to tell you that we can speak for you, to tell you that we can become your eyes and feet at this moment because the Lord can use this foundation to change your stories and I believe that after this meeting, something new will happen in your lives.”
The above statement was the voice of the Founder, Succour City Foundation and as well the Acting General Manager of Ebonyi State Rural Water and Sanitation Agency(EBRUWASA), Engr. Sunday Opoke during the exercise of “feeding the street” which took place on Saturday, 14th, December, 2019 in Abakaliki where the foundation played a vital role in visiting the less privileged who are mostly beggars and physically challenged, offering them food and other Christmas gift items.
Engr. Sunday noted that “feeding the street” is the first of its kind the foundation has embarked on this year, 2019, noting that the foundation has been in existence since 2008.
While extending kind gestures of love to the less privileged, he stated that Leadership is all about love and love is about the next person, saying that whosoever thinks about the welfare of the next person has automatically shown love.
He urged them to accept whatever little offer the foundation has made and take it as a sign of care and love from the foundation.
The Engr announced that on the next Saturday, 21st December, 2019, the foundation shall take every movement towards Ndubia Primary School where free medical care services shall be given to the sick and all interested persons.
Speaking on behalf of the recipients, Okemini Nwodom, Janneth John, Bartholomew Ogbuewu, Chibueze Nwamkpuma and some of them who are blind, lame, displaced by war, amongst others, thanked the Founder and the entire members of Succour City Foundation, saying that the foundation has given them hope to live.
