COVID-19 pandemic constitutes an unprecedented challenge with very severe socio-economic consequences. The JCIHP is committed to do her bit to help reduce the effect on poor households created by the pandemic in Enugu state in general.
On 20th of April, 2020, the JC Ibekaku Hope Project provided N5000 financial palliative measures to vulnerable families during the lockdown as a result of the outbreak of COVID19.
As Nigerians grind through the lockdown, hunger is definitely hitting many vulnerable families; and an urgent palliative measure to these families was provided to reduce the level of the effects of hunger in terms of financial aid by Chief Barr (Mrs) Juliet Ibekaku – Nwagwu, the Special Assistant to the President on Justice Sector Reforms through her pet project, a non-governmental organisation, JC Ibekaku Hope Project, that has supported over 1000 women in capacity development and interest-free micro credit schemes; and more than 500 youths in leadership development trainings.
Earlier during the first week of lockdown, which started 31st of March through 2nd, 3rd to 7th day of April, 2020, the organisation first embarked on enlightenment program to sensitize the public on the stay safe measures of NCDC and the need to wash hands or sanitize them regularly. The sensitization covered the following areas: Afor Nenwe market in Aninri LGA, Wonderful market in Oji-River LGA, Akin n’ukwa motor park Awgu LGA, Afor Iwollo market in Ezeagu and 9th Miles corner saloon park, mechanic village garage and Orie Egede market in Udi LGA; where information flyers, hand washing soaps, and sanitizers were distributed to the public educating them on all the stay safe measures by NCDC.
We will always act together in solidarity with the people and the government to support the needy in our society within our limited scarce resources. As the lockdown continues, the NGO is targeting another set of families for support.
Finally, This is Mr. Christopher Agudiebube (whose photo is enclosed below) from Amozalla Uwenu Egede in Udi LGA of Enugu State. He is one of the recipients of the N5,000 COVID-19 Cash Transfer Palliatives distributed to the poorest of the poor in Enugu West senatorial zone by Distinguished, Chief Barr (Mrs) Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu, Ada Eji Ejemba, the Special Assistant to the President on Justice Sector Reform and International Relations. Mr. Agudiebube was receiving Team Ibekaku, led by Hon. Elder Ben Ezeamuha at his home. Certainly, Mr. Agudiebube needs more help from YOU! As he is badly crippled and old that he cannot move by himself. You can reach him via Elder Ben or his account: AGUDIEBUBE CHRISTOPHER, A/c No. 3009733069, FIRST BANK. God bless you as you render this much needed support.
