Christmas: Catholic Bishop Of Adamawa Doles Out Cash To 200 PLWD


…Says, he feels happy assisting the less privileged

BY AUSTIN AJAYI, YOLA – As part of the Christmas   celebration particularly reaching out to the less privileged people, the Catholic Bishop of Yola Diocese, Bishop Dami Mamza has doled out N10,000 each to 200 People Living With Disability.
Bishop Mamza, who is also the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Adamawa State chapter, said it has been his culture to extend the gesture to prison inmates during every Christmas and Easter period, saying however that as a result of the second wave of COVID-19, reaching out to the prison inmates is difficult.
His Lordship also said owing to the challenge, he decided to forward such gesture to 200 PLWD in the state in order to make them have some sense of belonging during the festive period.
He said that his intention initially was to provide food items to them but decided to change it to cash so that they can use it for whatever they need for themselves.

The beneficiaries include both members of Christian and Muslim community.
Bishop Mamza has established a reputation for assisting both members of the Christian and Muslim community especially at the peak of the Boko Haram crisis when the Saint Theresa Catholic Church hosted hundreds of IDPs.
In expressing their appreciation of thekind gesture of the Bishop, spokesperson of the PLWD, Godiya Simon commended Bishop Mamza, saying that the gesture will go a long way in bringing succor to them.
Simon prayed God to bless Bishop Mamza exponentially for his unprecedented spiritedness and love for the less privileged.
