As part of his contribution to Mark this Year’s Mother’s Day , Chief Whip of the 9th Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu , on Sunday donated a power Generating Set and Cash to the Catholic Women Organisation of Nigeria (CWON) at St Patrick’s Catholic Church, Igbere, Bende LGA in Abia.

Kalu who attended the Mass alongside his retinue of staff and associates also inspected more completed infrastructure projects which he facilitated to this constituency. The projects which are sited within the Catholic church’s premises include a renovated one block of classroom at Okposi primary school, Igbere and a Solar powered Water Bore Hole at Ibinanta , Igbere.

In his earlier address Kalu eulogised the roles of women in the church and society, the former Governor tasked the women to imbibe the lessons learnt during the Easter season by reflecting the image of Jesus Christ who came to redeem mankind from sins. He equally called upon the women to be good examples of motherhood in their homes and workplaces, as they are carriers of God’s image.

Asides his donation to the CWO, the Abia-North Senator also made cash grants to different groups in the church and also made a cash payment for the immediate repairs in some parts of church building.

Stressing on the importance of his gifts to the Church, the Abia North Senator said the Generating Set is to complement the one already used in the church, he also appealed to the women organisation that though the power plant was given to them to encourage their activities, they should be liberal by making it available whenever the was in need of it.

In her previous remarks, President of CWO St. Patrick’s Parish, Mrs. Ezinne Veronica Okor lauded Orji Kalu for his support to the development and activities of the church over the years. They expressed their gratitude to Kalu while also appealing to him not to relent in his benevolence to their requests.
She said ; we express our profound happiness and gratitude for your unprecedented support and Kindness towards us. “Our sincere prayer is that God should continue to keep and bless you more. As we appreciate your kindness and benevolence towards the C.W.O, we urge you not to get fed up with our constant disturbances. You are the only one we have.

Making another request the CWO appealed to Kalu to assist the organisation in procuring an Bus for evangelical purposes which according to them will solve those transport problems and will also help them to participate in Deanery and Diocesan activities.

The parish priest Rev . Father Luke Alicho, during his homily, congratulated the women on their day and implored them to ensure peace in their homes. Luke urged parents to desist from engaging in domestic violence, saying that the world is in dire need of peace.

“The world is in need of peace in our family, society, places of work and so on . It’s unfortunate that the world lacks empathy, this Sunday gives us the opportunity to pray for peace which Jesus Christ has already given us.

“In no circumstance should any man raise his hand on any woman, men are supposed to protect the women. And women don’t take it for granted to disgrace and disrespect your husband. Women should stop nagging and over complaining about certain issues in the home, he preached.
