0

History was made on Saturday, the 26th of March, 2016, as a three-in-one community centre was opened at Amangba, Asaga, Arochukwu.

ABHHCS Nig. Ltd., operates an MTN communication centre, where people can get their complaints and enquiries sorted out. Above and Beyond (Home Health Care Services Nig Ltd) is a health care service outfit which provides home based professional services to the aged and disabled in the comfort of their homes in Arochukwu and its environs, while Natide Foundation is a community based social service with statutory obligations to safeguard and care for vulnerable persons in the society.

Speaking at the commissioning, the proprietor of the centre, Mazi Ottih Ezuma Nwaka, explained that his desire to bring world class services to the door steps of Umu Aro informed his decision to site the centres in Arochukwu. He explained that those living in Aro no longer have to embark on long journeys to Aba and Umuahia to sort out simple telecommunication issues. On the health care provisions for the aged and disabled, Nwaka stated that what was obtainable the world over is now in our community. The problem of aging continues to pose different challenges to several families but with the introduction of the facility, people can be well assured that their aged ones are well taken care of even in their absence. On Natide Foundation (named after Obinkita-born late Natide), Nwaka explained that people with special needs are usually scorned by the society. Their conditions are attributed to one curse or the other or one misfortune or the other, but with the introduction of the Foundation, vulnerable people in our society now have a place where they can be cared for.

Commissioning the centre, the President General of Nzuko Aro Mazi George Ezuma commended the founder for the initiative, and charged other Umu Aro to contribute their wealth of experience towards the development of the community. Others in attendance at the commissioning were Mazi Emma Kanu Ivi, Sir Dave Imoko, Dr. Azubike Okoro, Dr. Kanu Ohuche, Dr. Orji Ogbonnaya Orji, Julius Imuoh, Emma Nwadeyi, Ijoma Ijoma, all members of Nzuko Aro exco and several others.
