An Adamawa based nongovernment organization, Janna Health Foundation (JHF) has distributed assorted food items to one hundred and fifty less privileged in Michika, Adamawa State.
The Succour came through the foundations of meeting the health, mental and physical needs of people, especially the vulnerable in the society.
The donation according to the founder is to help them have a high-spirited Christmas celebration and to make them feel a sense of belonging that they are always loved and remembered.
The founder of JHF, Dr. Stephen John while distributing the food items said the gesture is one of the organization’s core missions of alleviating the poverty index of people in the society, especially the community of Adamawa Northern Senatorial district who are the worst hit of insurgents attacks.
According to him, the spirit behind the gesture is to help the widows and orphans prevail in the excruciating pains of the current economic meltdown that is biting harsh on everyone.
Representatives of the District Head of Michika who is the Village head of Michika two, Alhaji Bello Zubairu, the leadership of Muslims Council, Mallam Idris Mohammed, and his Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) counterpart, Joshua T Marino of Michika LGA appreciated Stephen for bringing the succor at the nick of time.
The beneficiaries who received
bags of rice, cooking oils, food seasonings, salt, and sugar gifts amidst tears of joy from JHF thanked Stephen for extending the hand of love at this time of their needs.
Stephen stressed that his firm belief in God to embark on this humanitarian venture of not going back or going on retreat, or surrender of wiping out their tears from people will be an exercise that will ever be and stand the test of time year in year out.
