“This is the first time in his­tory that we are vis­ited by the RA and we are sur­prised that there is some­one who can leave their com­fort­able of­fice and come to see us here. Your com­ing here is the be­gin­ning of all good things to come be­cause I know that the place will never be the same af­ter your visit,” she said.

She also urged the com­mu­nity to learn from what the RA has done by bring­ing gifts to the care point and also feed the chil­dren, es­pe­cially af­ter their har­vest.

car­ing spirit and vis­it­ing a poor com­mu­nity. “You are one of a kind and we thank His Majesty for ap­point­ing you to this area. We are aware that there were a lot of peo­ple in­volved in the project but choos­ing us as ben­e­fi­cia­ries makes us feel hum­bled,” he said.

He also c om­mended t he founder of the NCP stat­ing that the area has changed so many lives es­pe­cially the chil­dren who are learn­ing a lot es­pe­cially the Chris­tian­ity val­ues.
