January 07, (THEWILL) – A United States-based non-profit organisation, Ikon Health Foundation (IKON), has organised a free medical checkup for widows in Amokwe, Ihitte Uboma Local Government Area of Imo State.
Owned by Pharm. Ikenna Ogwuegbu, the foundation also distributed assorted relief materials to the widows and other Indigent persons in the area.
Meanwhile, beneficiaries of this humanitarian gesture have expressed appreciation to the CEO of the foundation, Ogwuegbu, for touching their lives positively.
“My name is Mrs Monica Nwachukwu. I am a native of Amokwe community. I pray to God Almighty to bless this my son, Pharmacist Ikenna Ogwuegbu, for remembering us.”
Another widow in her late sixties, Mrs Oluchi Ginikanwa, told THEWILL that the donor had been offering them free medical outreach and food items for a long time and therefore prayed to God to bless him.
“Since I lost my husband three years ago, nobody has taken care of me. IKON HEALTH FOUNDATION is God-sent to us. May Almighty bless him bountifully”, she prayed.
Others that benefitted were, Mrs Georgina Okonkwo, Roseline Maduakolam, Theresa Asibe, Okonkwo Fidelia, Theresa Maduakolam, Celine Okonkwo, Florence Ohanaka, Susana Nwokiwu, Florence Chikwendu and Stella Amechi.
