The Senior Pastor and General Overseer, Christ for the World Mission, Reverend Nick Ezeh, Saturday in Calabar donated a cash gift of two hundred and fifty thousand among other items to widows and an orphanage.
The gesture according to the Ezeh, is in celebration of his birth month aimed at alleviating the plight of the widows and assist the orphanage and a fulfilment of a covenant he entered alongside his wife to bless people.
At the premises of the Ministry of Women Affairs where he presented some of the gifts to the widows, Ezeh said that, “We said we should come together and become a blessing to widows and help the Government to compliment what they are doing, that is why it is a custom for us in Every July to bring comfort to the widows.”
He challenged those with the wherewithal to extend their generosity to the less privilege, as “Man was not created by God for creation sake but to be a blessing to others.”
Receiving the gifts, the Cross River State Women Affairs Commissioner, Stella Odey expressed happiness for the work done by the clergyman and announced she felt challenged by his philanthropy.
Speaking on behalf of the widows, Mrs. Rose Akpana, Mrs. Lydia Ebunta, Mrs. Agnes Ajom representing widows from the Northern, Central and Southern Senatorial Districts respectively, thanked Rev. Ezeh for the hand of kindness extended to them and prayed God blesses him.
The clergyman later visited the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Social Welfare operated orphanage home where he prayed with the children where he doled out cash, toiletries and food items.
