In its grand finale to climax the outreach of eight local government areas helping the less privileged in Adamawa State where it targeted thirty thousand people as beneficiaries, Emnamu Foundation has donated wheelchairs and first aid boxes to various primary healthcare centers in the state.
The communities of Pella, Dakza, Bangshika, Kwakwa’a, Fadama Rake, and Kala’a healthcare centers of Hong Local Government’ Area were given the equipment to enhance healthcare services.
Comrade Kukuya Godwin Kala’a in a statement signed on behalf of the foundation, appreciated the founder, Dr. Emmanuel N. Musa for such a large heart to meet the social, economic, and health needs of the people.
Kukuya revealed that sports items such as basketballs, handballs, nets, and whistles were given to Hong metro town to propel unity and peaceful coexistence among the people.
According to him, the presentation ended in grand style amidst fanfare, speeches, appreciation, gratitude prayers to Emmanuel who founded the group for the sole aim of supporting the downtrodden, vulnerable ones, less privileged and the physical challenged in the state.
“The occasion climaxed with well-meaning citizens of Kala’a, Hong, Gombi and many communities who came out in their numbers to witness the grand finale celebration.” Kukuya said.
Kukuya in the statement stated also that, Dr. Emmanuel is certainly not the richest man in Kilba Land, but his special nature and passion to humanity, caring for the poor, the downtrodden, the destitute, the old, and the people living with special challenges is second to none.
“I want to use this occasion to call on the illustrious sons and daughters of Hong Local Government Area and Adamawa State at large to emulate a good example of Mr. Emmanuel, knowing that whosoever gives to the poor, lends to the creator,” Kukuya added.
While commending security operatives, traditional and religious leaders, as well as members of the press for honouring the invitation, he called on the government to develop a deliberate bias in favor of the people living below the poverty line.
He said, “if an individual can reach out to every nooks and crannies of the state to care for the sick, the poor and other vulnerable groups, there is no reason why the government cannot do same.
“It is clearly stated in our constitution that the primary responsibility of the government is the security and welfare of the citizens, sadly both are faced with a huge deficit.”
