A disabled Nigerian lady, Ada Aniwetalu who was born with no arms has been received a mouthwatering gift by a church in Anambra State, where she lives.
Ada Aniwetalu, who has been going about her life activities using her toes received a newly built three-bedroom bungalow including a scholarship award by the church, headed by Archbishop Valerian Okeke.
The 21-year-old lady demonstrated resilience and hope amid her deformity as her strive to achieve just like any ambition young adult is what touched the clergy man who beckoned some individuals in the church and others to make this remarkable and overwhelming gesture.
Speaking to Legit.ng’s Victor Duru, the Chancellor of Onitsha Ecclesiastical Archidiocese, Rev. Fr. Emeka Arror, who represented Archbishop Valerian Okeke, explained what informed their gesture.
“The Archbishop was even surprised that his charitable deed leaked to the media because he wanted to do all those things secretly. He never wanted anybody to know and so he is not comfortable at all it leaked to the media. “We didn’t call any media house on the day the house was opened, maybe private individuals who came used their phones to take pictures and then made their reports.
“The Archbishop says this is a charity he did for what he believes in. You don’t do charity and begin to publicize it. I remember the Bible says, “let your left hand not know what your right hand is doing”. “This is the principle of the Archbishop and as such he is indisposed to discussing it with any media neither do I. “We also need to protect the privacy of this young girl – the young girl which he decided to help.”
