I and one of the participants : They made my day (1/3)

Hunger (SDG 2) is one of the major problem as we strive to combat this deadly disease known as coronavirus. Yesterday Saturday 

2nd of May,  2020 was indeed a great day, instead of staying home to watch movies, I decided to volunteer in palliative distribution with The Reach Foundation Nigeria.

Over 300 food were distributed to 300 families at OHAFIA QUARTERS COMMUNITY at Oyigbo in Rivers State., The government needs to pay serious attention to them because they lack basic amenities,  I hope they are remember soon because I know during National Elections they seek for their support why then when these politicians secure the positions they will forget those that voted them in,  This is wickedness. Though the joy, prayers and happiness can't be overemphasized seeing lives being touched by reaching out to vulnerable communities in this season of COVID19 . It was indeed a great success and am honored to be among the history that was made because I can't stop impacting lives positively.
