Senior Pastor, CGMi Church, Rev. Mrs. Laurie Idahosa for a Christmas Charity visit to a camp
housing widows and children displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency
in Nigeria was a huge success.
Speaking prior to the event, Uti
stated that his intention is to help foster hope amongst the IDPs
by assisting the camp administration in providing necessary aid and
awareness. Uti was the 2009 Best Graduating Student of Idahosa’s
school, Benson Idahosa University.

Uti’s drive to give back provided brand new clothing
materials to widows as well as educational items, toys and food to
children in the camp. Mrs. Idahosa’s drive supplied the volunteer
work force, logistics and a well-balanced meal for the the 2,400

The missionaries, widows and children in the
camp were ecstatic with all the gifts and especially commented
about being given meat to eat, explaining that it has been months
since they’ve tasted meat or fish.
Explaining his decision to
partner his NGO with Idahosa, Uti Nwachukwu said : " Idahosa’s
integrity and long term commitment to the humanitarian efforts for
the IDPs made her an ideal partner for this collaboration. This
year I was thinking of what to do differently for our 5th
anniversary so when she reached out to me, I knew it was God".
