In his interview, Ogbu said: “We the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Myanmar chapter, visited Yellow Generation Wave orphanage home today being 25th July 2020 as part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) which is giving back to the society. As we know that Charity, in Christian thought, is the highest form of love, signifying the reciprocal love between God and man that is made manifest in the unselfish love of one’s fellow men. So with this little act of kindness by the OHANEZE NDI IGBO MYANMAR CHAPTER, we hope and pray that God will bless us all and also grant pardon to our brothers who are in prison here.
Also in discussions with the monks in charge of the orphanage home, they told us that it has not been easy for them during this global pandemic COVID 19), as most of their Nannies have to stop work because of the pandemic and this made it difficult for them to take care of the children. They told us that everything is gradually coming back to normal.
“My message to Ndigbo in Nigeria is to embrace peace and love and also learn to be charitable by fulfilling their corporate social responsibility (CSR) which is giving back to the society financially, morally and otherwise.
We the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Myanmar chapter and the Nigerian Community Association in Myanmar has also been working together for the betterment of all Nigerians and Igbo’s living in Myanmar
