Having visited most orphanage homes in the State Capital in the past, Mr. Njoku thought it wise to make further steps in visiting one of the homes away from the outskirt of Owerri.

She started by tracing the history of the orphanage home, noting that the Okwelle Motherless Babies home is the oldest Motherless home in the whole of Nigeria, being the first project of the Late Bishop Gogo Nwedo of Umuahia in 1952.
The orphans, about 30 of them, sang happy birthday songs for the progressive son of Mbano who in turn presented gifts to them with smiles beaming on their face.
At 4:30pm, Ifeanyicy Njoku, accompanied by friends visited the Federal Medical Center, Owerri where he offered financial assistance to over ten women who had their children sick in the hospital and undergoing treatment.
