Wife of Anambra State Governor, Chief Ebelechukwu Obiano, has praised Dr. and Mrs. Obi Ifezulike for donating one Ford ambulance to her NGO, Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFÉ), to support delivery of medical services in the rural communities of the state.

Mrs. Obiano commended the donors for identifying with CAFÉ and supporting programmes that impact positively on the health of the people.

She described the gesture as an indication that the couple indeed has a “heart of gold.”

She said: “I am elated and excited that the ambulance is coming at a very good time because CAFÉ needs such support as we are set to commence the setting-up of Old People’s Home in the three senatorial districts of the state and we have acquired land for the project.”

Mrs. Obiano assured the donor that the ambulance would be effectively utilised in the service of Ndi Anambra.

She restated her commitment to the promotion of the welfare of Ndi Anambra and support of the people oriented programmes of the administration of her husband through CAFÉ.

She also called on other public spirited individuals to emulate the philanthropic gesture of the donors.

Explaining the reasons for donating the Ford ambulance to CAFÉ, Mrs. Roseline Ifezulike said her family “has observed with admiration the activities of CAFÉ towards the improvement of the health and lives of Ndi Anambra both young and old.

“We, therefore, decided to transfer to your CAFÉ programme, one unit of Ford Ambulance vehicle for you to deploy as you deem fit for the movement of the aged and the sick whom you have shown so much love,” she stated.

Handing over the keys of the ambulance to Mrs Obiano, Dr. Obi Ifezulike, a consultant physician, told the Governor’s wife that the ambulance is an expression of the Ifezulike family’s appreciation of her effort and a show of support.

In a brief remark, a friend of the family and Chairman, Anambra State Local Government Service Commission, Dr. Peter Egenti, said the ambulance donation is a manifestation of what Mrs. Ifezulike had always felt and expressed – a desire to support the programmes of the Governor’s wife through CAFÉ.

He commended the family for the gesture, noting that it actually came from a ‘heart of gold’.
