As a priest I love to help people who are in need. When I was in Nigeria I visit the motherless babies twice a year to be with the kids and give them both emotional and financial support. Living in a country that the majority of the people are living below poverty level there is so much you would want to do but is always impossible to do enough. Presently I have borehole project going on in two different places in my community. I really love helping people and will always help if I have the means.
