Thursday 14/05/20 will forever be etched in the minds of the Anglican Communion of Mbamili Diocese as the Senator Stella Adaeze Oduah palliative distribution team visited the Diocese, bearing food items like bags of rice, tubers of yam and cartons of noodles to cushion the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
On hand to receive the items was the Anglican Bishop of Mbamili Diocese, The Rt Reverend Henry Okechukwu Okeke who thanked the Senator for remembering the indigent people of Anambra West whilst stressing the critical nature of the times we live in and the fact that it is becoming increasingly difficult to make a distinction between the indigent and the affluent.
In his words, he said; “Today we are gathered to receive and appreciate one of the many gestures of the Senator representing us, Princess Stella Adaeze Oduah.
We are very glad that she is visiting the Anglican Diocese of Mbamili in Anambra West and thank her for remembering the people at this very critical time that has seen most economies and businesses crumbling, with hardship taking center stage.
“And so for her to look the way of our indigent at this crucial time is very encouraging and a very big incentive to the people, particularly to the Anambra West farmers who will need to have some form of encouragement before launching into their farms and so I want to thank her on behalf of the Anglican Diocese of Mbamili and infact, on behalf of the entire Anambra Westerners because she didn’t only do this for the Anglican communion, she equally extended this gesture to the Catholics, Pentecostals, Widows in all the aforementioned Christian denominations and so many other groups.
So I want to thank her for what she has done which is a wonderful gesture and to say that God will bless her”
Whilst handing over the items, the Director of Mobilization for the Senator Stella Adaeze Oduah political family, Barr Noel Udeoji reiterated her commitment to ensuring the indigent in all 7 LGA’S are cushioned from the debilitating effects of the pandemic which explained why churches of all denominations were used to target this demographic.
