Prior to his admission into the Federal Medical Center, Owerri, Imo State, all the people in his neigbourhood, members of his church and even some Govt. agencies were afraid of intervening in his case when we first reported it. Their fear according to them was that his case was so critical and they felt he would give up in their hands.
For us, as an organization with a passion to save lives and put smiles on peoples’ faces, we saw his case as one of those trying times for us, in which we needed to prove our worth and mission.
Despite discouragements from several quarters, we took the bull by the horn and started providing food for him and got him ready for admission into the hospital. Our organization made the initial donations that sustained him and our volunteers bathed him for the first time after several months in that condition.
By the grace of God, we successfully saw him through his days at the hospital and got him treated of pneumonia, partial stroke, diabetes, partial blindness, etc.
Today, Mr. Joe is better and can see, talk and walk about to the glory of God! As we speak, the Imo Foundation is making arrangement to move him into the Imo State Old Peoples’ Home, after rennovating the home by May, 2013.
May we use this opportunity to thank those that supported us… Women Advancement and Development Initiative, Imo Foundation, and Soteria Ministries.
