The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry in Enugu State, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka said he spends over $2 million silently every month on charity.
Fr. Mbaka disclosed this while presenting N18.8m bank draft to the management of the Annunciation Specialist Hospital, Enugu, on behalf of Multi-Life Savers for the Less Privileged, a non-profit arm of his ministry.
The priest gave out N10 million to 200 select members of the Charismatic Renewal of Nigeria for empowerment coupled with a bag of rice each.
He explained that the N18.8m was to cover accumulated free medical services that the hospital had rendered to indigent people on his bill, amounting to over N14m. Mbaka said:
“We are basically here to continue the relationship that this wonderful health facility has with our charity organisation and Adoration Ministry, Enugu.
“We presented a bank draft worth N18.8 million to them to cover the accumulated bills of indigent patients they had treated at our instance, plus a deposit for other indigent patients that would come here in future.
“We do this every day and it is on record that there is no month that I don’t spend at least $2 million silently, on charity. So, this visit is just one out of several charity outings that we undertake without any publicity.
“I represent the ministry here, as the chief servant. What we are doing is physical but I am also here, on behalf of the supernatural part of the exercise.
“This programme is purely inter-religious, inter-tribal and interdenominational. Among the beneficiaries are Catholics, Pentecostals, and Muslims, among others.”
