The Steering Committee of Anambra State Disability Community COVID 19 Response Team, the chairmen and the secretaries of it's sub-committees on Friday 19th June, 2020 happily received representatives from the OBIJACKSON Foundation in their office at the Women Development Center, Awka, which was in response to the appeal the committee made to their Foundation requesting for palliatives to assist persons with disabilities in the state. The items received include:
* 100 bags of 25kg rice
* 5 bags of salt, and

In his vote of thanks, the chairman of the Steering Committee, Comr.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Disability Matters, Barr. Chuks Ezewuzie also appreciated the foundation unbehalf of the State Government and further explained that persons with disabilities are the worst hit by the pandemic pointing out that the Foundation which has been partnering with the state government in the fight against the pandemic has again demonstrated that they have the plights of the less privilege at heart and used the opportunity to call on other good spirited individuals and philanthropists to emulate what Obijackson Foundation has done.
The high point of the event was the presentation of the items to the Response Team from the foundation.
Also present at the event were the SA to Governor on Sign Language Communication - Mr. Collins Joseph and the staff members of the Office of the Governor on Disability Matters.
