The former Gov. of Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi has called for support for the elderly in the society. Speaking during his visit to the Old People’s Home ran by the Immaculate Heart of Mary’s Sisters at Nkpor, Obi described support for such ventures as authentic christian charity.
Further, Obi said that one of the joys of growing old is for those one cared for in his youth to also care for one in his old age with understanding and love. Commending the sisters for the gesture, he called on the young ones to emulate such noble acts by taking care of their aged ones.
Receiving a cheque of 2 million Naira on behalf of the Congregation, the Mother General, Rev. Sr Mary Claude Oguh thanked Mr. Peter Obi for his love for humanity, which he had used all available opportunity to demonstrate both as Givernor and a private person.
Sr. Mary Caude said that their Congregation, in the best Catholic tradition, would keep on attending to the spiritual and necessary material needs of the people as much as they could.
