The wife of Executive Governor of Enugu State Mrs Ugochi Ugwuanyi has shown her motherly care by flagging off a deworming programme for children in Udenu LGA. The programme was flagged off on Wednesday 13th October at Central School Obollo Eke. The health care programme is being carried out by Ugochi Touch Of Life Foundation, a pet project of Her Excellency Ugochi Ugwuanyi in partnership with UNICEF.
The project is targeted at children of primary school age. This is because the children in this bracket are the ones that suffer worm related sickness the most. The programme will go round all the political wards in Udenu LGA and may even be extended to other Local Government Areas depending on the availability of resources.
Present at the event held at Obollo Eke were two health officials, educational secretaries, head teachers, political stakeholders, pupils and parents.
The joy of the people of the area knew no bound as they were full of praises to Mrs Ugwuanyi. The parents present were thankful to Mrs Ugwuanyi for bringing such health care initiative to their door steps free. Mrs Ugwuanyi who was represented by her SSA Mrs Ngozi Okpe explained the benefits of the program to the teeming families on ground during the event.
It is important to underscore the uncommon efforts of the first Lady of Enugu State to support her husband in his good governance objectives in the state. Ever since the assumption of office as governor, Mrs. Ugochi Ugwuanyi whom many have chosen to give the right sobriquet of “Oso Di Eme” have never hidden her passion and preparedness to go the whole hog with her husband to harvest good governance dividends for Ndi Enugu. Using her pet project, “Ugo Touch of Life Foundation”, she has been able to bring to bear an uncommon impact especially in the lives of children, women and youths.
It is equally important to pray for this wonderful first family who have vowed to leave Enugu on a higher level of developmental rungs than they ever met it. By placing Enugu State in the hands of God, God is truly manifesting His grace in more ways than one.
Enugu state is truly in the hands of God.
