Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay during the Christmas celebration commissioned a 150 bed sitter capacity dormitory for Human Welfare for Empowerment and Development Initiative (HWEDI) under the Assertion of Grace Global Outreach built by the Minority Leader of the Federal House of Representatives and member representing Isoko Federal Constituency Hon Leo Ogor. The dormitory which is located along Aviara road, Irri, Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State is well equipped with modern facilities to make the orphans feel the comfort of home. Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, the immediate past Secretary to the Delta State Government, Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay said the charity initiative embarked upon by the Minority Leader of the Federal House of Representatives, Hon Leo Ogor is timely, and commendable. While emphasizing the importance of charitywork, Ovuozourie, hinted that the founder and staff of HWEDI has done well for the orphans. According to him it was his desire to do same, but he gave thanks to Almighty God for using the federal lawmaker to alleviate the suffering of the less privilege. “I have been involving myself in given alms to the orphans for many years but the dream to build an orphanage dormitory as this one has not been met due to series of event while in government. But today, with the help of my friend and brother it has come to pass” he said. Earlier the patron of Human Welfare for Empowerment and Development Initiative (HWEDI) Hon Leo Ogor said individuals should demonstrate a special concern for this group of persons because they are helpless and therefore very vulnerable. He therefore vowed that as long as God continue to protect and keep him alive, his assistance to the development of the place will continue ``Life is tough for children with parents, so the plight of those without parents can only be imagined,’’ he said. He said the dormitory would assist the orphans to restore the hope they lost, speaking to journalists shortly after the commissioning of the project.Ogor said that the society should assist them because their view about the society was always negative due to the trauma they went through. While narrating what motivated him to carry out such benevolent works, he said he has always placed himself on the receiving end but having seen himself in the place God has placed him in the society today through the mandate given to him by Isoko federal constituents he is left with no other option but to replicate such gesture to the society.
