In an effort to show love to the needy and other poor segments of the society, the Tony Major Charity Organization during the Christmas and new year, embarked on distribution of food items, cash gifts,copies of the Holy Bible to the less privileged, orphans and widows in some parts of Port Harcourt and Obio-Akpor Local Government Areas.
Speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt, the Chairman of the organization, Ambassador Anthony Major described the foundation as a product of necessity, having once needed help from others.
"I grew from grass to grace. I also want others to benefit from my testimony. It gives me joy when I help people. In this 2021, I'm only begging God to provide more for me so that I can reach out to the areas am supposed to touch”, he said.
According to the philanthropist who hailed from Ase-Asaga Community in Ndoni District of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area, "It pains me when somebody meets me and ask for anything at all and I cannot be able to attend to his needs. It pains me as I will not have rest of mind until I do the needful".
With the April 17, 2021 Local Government Election in Rivers State just around the corner, the business mogul who also provided scholarships to some indigent students, has urged political leaders to have the fear of God, knowing that no office is permanent, even as he also charged the youths to guide their PVCs jealously and use it judiciously to elect credible leaders.
The Tony Major Charity Organization's boss denied insinuations that he is in partnership with individual or organization, stating that the foundation is a self-effort, giving all glory to God for the sustenance.
Some other places visited by the team were Ndoni Town, Ase-Asaga and five other communities in Ndoni District and OgwuIkpeleCommunity in neighboring Anambra State where more than 100 women and elders received food items and cash gifts.
As a mark of appreciation, the paramount ruler of OgwuIkpele Community, HRH, Ewujioha Felix Obiesie blessed Ambassador Major and his foundation and urged him to keep up the good work.
