IWD: Philanthropist and Founder, Abigail Ukaegbu Foundation, Dr. Chimezie Isaac Ukaegbu, Donates to Women, Downtrodden and Youths in a Low-keyed Birthday Celebration.

In the spirit of global celebration of women, with a date (March 8) designated as International Women’s Day, a UK based, Abia born philanthropist of international repute, Chief Dr. Chimezie Isaac Ukaegbu, founder, Abigail Ukaegbu Foundation, has registered smile on the lips of Women in Umuahia, Abia State.

This act of Charity was done by donating the sum of One million Naira to Wesley Cathedral Women’s Fellowship of Methodist Church Nigeria, during their 2023 Pre-Mothering Sunday Week held at the Church Auditorium on Sunday 5th March, 2023.

Dr. Ukaegbu and his entourage, later joined the wife of Labour Party governorship candidate, Mrs Priscilla Alex Otti at St. Michael Anglican Church, Uzi Ossa, Ibeku-Umuahia, to support her in a special service organized for the less privileged in the society.

Speaking at the ceremony, presided over by Reverend Aaron A. Akabuokwu, Dr. Ukaegbu acknowledged the indispensable role women are playing for the wellbeing of the society.

He emotionally recalled how his late mother, Grace Ukaegbu led the Women’s Fellowship and Amuzukwu Ibeku-Umuahia Women Association with religious zeal and commitment.

Similarly, the joyous mood extended to March 11, when Dr. Chimezie Ukaegbu marked his birthday, but, he declined requests by his friends for planned elaborate birthday bash, maintaining that “the mood of the nation, where people are experiencing unprecedented economic hardship due to CBN currency and the lingering electoral crisis perpetrated by INEC do not require the rolling out of drums for any celebration”.

The Africa Institute for Charity (AIC) Governing Council Member, Dr. Ukaegbu, however splashed several millions and gifts to the downtrodden, youths and women in his community in low-keyed occasions to alleviate their prevailing circumstances.

In agreement with his position to maintain a sober reflection on his birthday, is his friend Dr. Alex Otti, Labour Party governorship candidate, who came privately to ‘pray and thank God for the life of my friend and brother’.
The Archbishop of Umuahia Methodist Church Diocese, His Holiness, Chibuzor Raphael Opoko was also on hand to offer a special prayer to “Almighty God for the life of His humble servant-Chimezie Isaac Ukaegbu.”

To reciprocate the kind gesture of Chief Dr. Chimezie Isaac Ukaegbu (Aku ruo Ulo 1 of Amuzukwu Ibeku-Umuahia) feted them, the Women’s Fellowship of Methodist Church Nigeria, honoured him with Heart of Gold award, alongside his friend, Chief Dickson Nzenwa (Aku bara Oha 1 of Emede – Ibeku Umuahia, Abia State, who also donated to the Church.
