A Member of Parliament, MP in Cameroon’s North west region has rekindled hope in a 77-year-old widow who was about giving into despair due to hardship, by making a remarkable donation of house equipment to the woman.
Mama Lum Monica was visibly elated when the parliamentarian for the Bafut-Tubah constituency, Hon. Agho Oliver made her felt loved again many years after the death of her husband.
Thanks to the gesture, mama Lum now has a brand new bed, mattress, bedspreads and a blanket.
The 77-year-old widow whose per capita income is less than 500 Francs CFA was genuinely overwhelmed to discover there were people in society like Hon. Agho Oliver, who still care about the underprivileged.
Presenting the items to Mama Monica, Juliana Sirri and her team of volunteers of the Vision for Hope foundation appreciated the donor, and prayed that God continues to use him in changing the lives of others in Bafut and elsewhere, who live below the poverty line.
Echoeing the wisdom of the old, Juliana was of the opinion that ‘one person caring about another represents life’s greatest value’, and that Agho Oliver was definitely that person.
Without wasting time, her team of volunteers immediately went to work, dismantling the deteriorated bamboo bed, discarding with the old bedbug breathing beddings, cleaning and disinfecting the home, before adorning it with the newly furnitured bed.
In response to the parliamentary magnanimity, the old widow thanked God Almighty for making her smile again after years of living in deplorable conditions and abandonment.
The old woman saw in Hon. Agho Oliver and Vision for Hope Organization, the husband to widows and the destitutes, and prayed God to continue to replenish and protect their sources.
People in the Njibujang neighborhood, Bafut subdivision, joined the beneficiary to thank the good samaritan in the name of their young Honorable gentleman who had done the needful at time all hope was about getting lost amidst a worsening armed conflict in the English-speaking part of Cameroon.
The Sunday April 3, 2022, event in Bafut gave villagers a rare opportunity to relive Theordore Roosevelt’s statement that ‘Nobody cares how much you have and know, until they know how much you care’.
