Wife of Ebonyi state governor, Mrs Rachel Umahi has paid medical bills of a 14-year-old boy, Eze Sunday, who was treated of diabetes in Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki.
Eze was abandoned in the hospital by his parents for more than four months following the financial implication of his ailment.
It was gathered that since the boy was brought to the hospital by the parents and even after he recovered, neither the parents nor anybody else visited to look after him.
The governor’s wife had gone across relevant institutions in the state to help indigent people when she spotted Eze in the hospital.
Eze thanked the governor’s wife for coming to his rescue, saying the area that mostly pained him was that he had been out of school following the sickness.
Meanwhile, Mrs Umahi has donated food items worth hundreds of thousands of naira to indigent citizens in the state.
While flagging off the distribution, Mrs Umahi said she had the passion of helping the needy and urged other wealthy citizens to toe the line.
Some of the items donated by the state’s first lady include provisions, bags of rice, tubers yam, detergents, soap, cooking oil among other things.
