5 Daniel's Story - The Dogo-Nahawa Experience

Young Daniel, an indigene of Dogo-nahawa, a remote village between Barikin-Ladi and Jos South L.G.A in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria, was one of the victims and remnants of the worst massacre of human lives and properties, whose father was not as lucky, as he was slaughtered in the massacre which took the lives of Three Hundred and Fifty-four (354) persons on March 7th, 2010 which includes men, women both pregnant, nursing mothers and children. In the early hours of ill-fated day, while the innocent good people of Dogo-nahawa community were asleep, the Fulani herdsmen, now Boko Haram, invaded the community with knives (machetes), guns, axes, and other dangerous weapons, killing and maiming members of the community for several hours without any form of interruption or resistance by government security agencies, leaving not less than 354 persons hacked down in cold blood while others including Daniel were brutally macheted and some with their limbs cut off and many were forcefully made widows and widowers as you can see in the pictures below:

6 ALOZIE VICTORIA C.

I am from a poor home. I have been in poverty since I entered into secondary school. I am in SS3 class now and I have been asking God to help my parent fine money for my SSCE exam that will be coming up soon. My parent have tried everything possible to raise money so I can pay for the exam but all to know avail. Not on till one day my mother meet a prophet here in our place who gave her the phone number of Apostle Engine who told my mother to tell my sister to come to P.H. were they are. So I went with her not having in mind that I will be among the people that will be given scholarship. He gave the two of us scholarship. I was very very happy that day like seriously words cannot express my happiness that day. My thanks goes to apostle engine and all the members of A.H.F. May God keep on blessing you people Amen!

We worship at ABUNDANT LIFE EVANGEL MISSION. Words cannot express our appreciation on how Arm of Hope has intervened in our educational status. We the entire Bello’s family are appreciating Arm of Hope which is founded by APOSTLE EUGENE .E. OGU, because indeed you people helped us greatly in our various educational status. It was difficult for us to go to school, because we were sent back home from school, because we owed the school and our fees was not paid. We missed tests carried outing the class and even exams. It was indeed difficult for us to continue our school before we encountered you. You people indeed put a smile on our faces, and everything started going well with us.

8 Jack Angela

My name is Boma Jack a native of Tombia in Rivers state.My sister’s name is Omona-a Jack. I am eleven years old while she is nine years old. We both attend Emilio Piazza Memorial School. My mum is Mrs Amaka Jack married to my dad late Mr Jonny Jack who died in 2008. After my father’s death life was not easy for us. MY mother has been the one catering for I and my younger sister both in education and other areas of our upkeep until in 2012 the Arm Of Hope World Outreach took up the responsibility to take care of I and my younger sister’s payment of school fees. My school fees is #44,000 while that of my younger sister is #30,000.Your humanitarian approach to my family has been so wonderful because I don’t know what would have been our faith if not for your lovely intervention. My prayer is that the almighty God will continue to replenish you and also bring people to intervene in your cases whenever the need arises. Thank  you and God bless.

9 Joyce Banku Eyong

My name is Joyce Banku Eyong. I am 15yrs old, I was born on Dec  3RD , 1999. I am the third child in a family of four.My late father(GOD BLESS HIS SOUL) Sgt Patrick Eyong was an indigene of Ugep in Yakurr L.G.A of Cross River State while my mother Mrs Maria Eyong is from Boki L.G.A of Cross River State. I am in SS3 in NICO Secondary Comprehensive School Calabar. I am about writing my SSCE Exam. My termly fees has been N19,400. But the case is different for all SS3 students, we are now expected to pay the three terms fees including registration for SSCE which sums up to a total of N84,500.I lack words to emphasize the joy over the intervention of ARM OF HOPE for the scholarship given to me since my JSS3. It has really helped us a lot to relief some financial challenges and brought great happiness to my mother, myself and the entire family as a whole. My mother who was known as a woman that always come to plead on my behalf  in order to pay my fees in 2 to 3 instalments  every term until that fateful day that ARM OF HOPE took over my school sponsorship. And I must confess, it has really improve my mother’s health that was almost going hypertensive. May God continue to Bless ARM OF HOPE and her Ministries. My younger sister Gift Eyare Eyong is in primary 5, she is 11yrs old. It will be of more help if ARM OF HOPE can also take care of my sister’s school fees which is N16,700 per term. She was 5months old when our Dad died and she is the family’s last born. Daddy left us on the 14th of January, 2005 and since then we have been struggling to survive, no help from anyone but all the same we still give Thanks to Almighty God. Once again I say a very big thank you to ARM OF HOPE, and may the almighty GOD continue to bless and multiply you all for all the help you’ve rendering to everyone out there most especially the widows. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!

10 Mrs. Callista Chika Igwe

Am Mrs. Callista Chika Igwe, a native of Imo State in Ikeduru L.G.A. Am a widow with three children, I lost my husband in the year 2008, then it became so hard for me. I began to struggle as much as I could as a business woman in order to meet up with the needs of family, it wasn’t easy, because of this I never rest, I struggle from morning till night and from Monday to Sunday, even no time for church due to restlessness. I began to have chest pain. When I heard about this man of God, Apostle Eugen. E. Ogu and his vision, Arm of Hope Organization, I went to his office, there immediately he gave my three children scholarship from where they are to their university level. His arm of hope has been helping me since then, this help started from 2012 when my first child Kelechi Igwe was in J.S.S 3 second term and now his is in S.S 3. Then Uchechi Igwe was in J.S.S 1 second term, now she is in S.S. 1, while Amarachi Igwe was in basic 2 second term, now she is in basic 5. I thank God who is using this Arm of Hope to wipe away widows’ tears, orphans’ and the needy. I pray that God will continue to prosper them in Jesus Name. Amen.

11 Opukumo Princess

With a sincere heart of gratitude I write this letter. Of a truth the AHF Education Intervention has been of tremendous help to, my siblings and my mother. My name is Opukumo Princess A. Wilson born on 2nd August, 1998 and my siblings names are Opukumo Queen I. Wilson born on 9th December, 2000 and Opukumo Lucky D. Wilson born on 17th February, 2003. We all speak Ogbia Language as we hail from Otuokpoti in Ogbia Local Government Area, Bayelsa State. The name of our school is Success International School. Prior to the intervention of AHF, we lost our dad and things were bad with us and our mum. We almost droppped out of school. We were always sent out of school. Infact, life was very tough, until we encountered AHF Education Intervention. Since then, the nightmare of being asked to leave school disappeared and school became enjoyable. My mother also stopped running around for school fees. I want to use this medium to thank the organizers of AHF Education Intervention for their kind gesture and a heart of love for the younger generation. I also want to use this medium to say that for about three terms now we have not received any help from AHF Education Intervention and we are still owing the school. As for me I have managed to finish my secondary school though still owing the school. My siblings are yet to finish. I am pleading with AHF Education Intervention organizers not to stop this help from coming because I and my siblings want to be graduates. I don’t want my siblings to be school drop-out and I don’t want to end up with just SSCE result as I wish to seat for the forth-coming Jamb Examination to step into the university.
