-Blank NEWS Online (NIGERIA) –From Editor’s DESK:

WIFE of the Governor of Delta State and founder of 05 Initiative, Dame Edith Okowa, has passionately appealed to well meaning individuals and corporate bodies to always support orphanage homes and care givers operating in the state.

She stated this during the issuance of cheques to selected, registered orphanages operating in state by Zenith Bank Nigeria Plc through the O5 Initiative on Monday 2nd August 2021 at Government House, Asaba.

According to the Governor’s wife, “As you are aware, this programme which started in 2017 is done annually by Zenith Bank through the O5 Initiative to mark the birthday of my dear Husband Sen. Dr Ifeanyichukwu Okowa who at the inception of this administration made a passionate appeal to Deltans to take care of orphans instead of organizing parties in his honour.

“Zenith Bank Nigeria Plc keyed in and have been consistent with this presentation as part of the Vision of the O5 Initiative to care for Orphans.

“This is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous in our eyes, even when the world is going through hard times, there is still supply for the needy.”

The selected beneficiaries are two Orphanages from each of the three Senatorial Districts of Delta state.

In Delta Central,
Shepherd Care Orphanage and
St Joseph Orphanage Oghara received their cheques respectively

In Delta North, Trinitarian Orphanage Asaba and
Great Saint Orphanage Issele Uku benefitted from the Largesse.

In Delta South, Crown Kids Orphanage Effurun
and Aruka Peace Foundation were also issued cheques.

“I will like to passionately appeal to well meaning individuals and corporate bodies to take a cue from the kind gesture of Zenith bank, do not wait until you have so much, with the little you have you can join us in Changing our World one person at a time.”

She therefore, urge our caregivers to use the funds judiciously to add value to the lives of the Children and to ensure that the orphans are given the best.
