An orphan girl who her parents some years ago – has been given a reason to smile again courtesy of Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha.
“I had lost all hopes, nobody was willing to help me and my two siblings, nobody wanted to associate with us. For years, we suffered terribly without help,” these were the words of Victoria.
Fortunately for Victoria, she was the star price winner of the recently concluded #Rochasfoundation 20th Anniversary giveaway.
Victoria lost her father to a ghastly car accident in 2002 and later lost her mother to kidney disease in 2012. Since then, together with her two younger siblings, they had lived from hand to mouth, resorting to begging to get their daily bread. She couldn’t further her education of course.
During the search for worst-case scenario in her village, the Rochas Foundation scout team found her. At the just concluded Rochas Foundation 20th anniversary celebration, Victoria was given a newly built fully furnished two bedroom apartment, a brand new car for taxi business that will be managed for her, 2.7 million naira and her younger sister was also given full free education from primary to university.
