She spoke further as follows: “You agree with me that these activities are capital intensive considering our harsh economic realities. We however glorify the name of God for our few benevolent benefactors who have often times been of immense help. However, we wish to state that demand is higher than the supply which keeps on increasing by the day. Suffice it to say that we still need men and women with heart of flesh to join us in this crusade in line with the injunctions of God to be “our brothers’ keeper”. Afterall, our good services would be the indelible mark to be seen in the sand of times by posterity born and unborn when we are gone; so why can’t we let the music of benevolence play? There is no doubt that some of us are blessed here to help in any way God will lay in their hearts to see this dream of bettering the future of our children come true. This you can do through cash donations, food donation, clothes, drugs, etc. Your attendance of today’s event has no doubt assured me of your unalloyed support to this course. May God bless you for your show of love.”
