Children at the Nigeria Red Cross Motherless Babies Home and other physically challenged in collaboration with the Forum of Coordinators in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, have poured out their hearts for God to grant healing to the state Governor, David Umahi and all those suffering from COVID-19.
According to the Chairman, Ebonyi State Forum of Coordinators and the Coordinator of Izzi Development Centre, Hon Beatrice Eze, the prayer was held to mark the end of three days of the Forum’s prayer and fasting for the governor, where they decided to pay a visit to the motherless babies’ home located at Nsugbe and vulnerables opposite Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church.
The Forum donated items which include diapers, detergents, toiletries, wipes and an undisclosed amount of money, noting the effectiveness of their (children’s) prayers.
“At a time like this, we know that if the children cry out to God, he is going to listen to them. So, we are giving them this token to help them. We know that through their prayers, our governor will get well”, she stated.
“We brought this as a token to enable you people continue to take care of the motherless children under your care. You are aware of the Coronavirus and we know how much it has affected the economy.” Hon Eze said.
The Chairman, Nigeria Red Cross Motherless Babies Home, Chief Simeon Nweze, commended the state governor for his magnanimity towards humanity and further pledge their support to the state government.
According to Nweze, “We want to thank His Excellency, Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi for his unprecedented achievements in Ebonyi State, especially his disposition to clean environment. I want to also thank the Coordinators for their gestures. Of course, we heard that the governor tested positive to COVID-19, but we are sure he is going to get well soon.
“Those of you who are close to David Nweze Umahi, I want you to call on him to go and represent us in Abuja. The children here with our support will pray for the governor because there is nobody will pray for that God do not answer. So many people do come here for prayer and by the special grace of God their prayers are answered.
“Those of you who are coordinators, you will be elevated to higher positions. The governor’s healing is going to be miraculous. The miracle on his life is going to be exceptional.”
