During holy week, we set out to touch lives across Nigeria in commemoration of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ’s death and Resurrection.
Easter is the fulfillment of the messiah’s prophecy of being persecuted, death for our sins and resurrection on the third day.
Remembering Jesus’ Resurrection is a great way to renew our daily hope that we have won the Battle against sin – as a result the Barrister Sam Otoboeze Foundation (BSOF) teams in Lagos, Enugu and FCT Abuja engaged in outreach programs to give to the less privileged.
In Lagos, the BSOF team visited Mary who is an orphan. We had previously been contacted by Mary who informed us that things had not been easy for her and that she will be grateful if we could assist her by providing her with us sewing machine so that she could earn a living with her sewing skills.
We were moved by her story and embarked on a fact-finding mission to confirm that it was true. To God be the Glory, we surprised her with a brand new sewing machine, which she was thrilled to receive.
In her message of gratitude, she said, ‘I can’t believe such a gift can come from people I’ve never met.’
In Enugu, we provided artificial limbs to 7 amputees to help them move around freely. The amputees were transported to River State where measurements were taken to ensure that they receive the correct size that would fit them perfectly. The amputees were grateful to the Barrister Sam Otoboeze Foundation (BSOF) for taking the time to consider their plight and decide to make a difference in their lives.
They were in joyous mood when they said that the artificial limbs to make mobility is here for them we settled
We carried out the widows empowerment program at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Gbessa, Abuja. We provided relief items such as food and clothing to the widows in order to make their lives easier.
They were so touched by the kindness that they prayed to God to bless and remember us as we thought of them.
As we continue to celebrate Easter, may this season be a blessing to you and your family. Amen.
