To mark the nation’s 61st anniversary, members of the Grace Foundation at the weekend touched the lives of 3000 Nigerians from indigent communities during its annual outreach known as Hands Up Nigeria.
According to the President of the Foundation, Deacon Philip Okuabor, the 8th edition of the programme was packaged to bring hope, joy and succour to Nigerians in spite of the myriad challenges affecting them at this time.
We call the program Hands Up for Nigeria because we recognise that if Nigeria is going to live out its potential of greatness then we need to lift our hands up for it.
Okuabor explained that:
We have to identify with it, pray for it and also be of help to one another.
He added that:
Every year for 7 years now over 2000 have received clothing, foodstuff and medical care at the event. This eight edition is targeted to reach 3000 people and is scheduled to be held at the First Bank Sports field in Satellite Town, Lagos.
