Nollywood actress and Dano milk ambassador, Rachael Okonkwo popularly known as Nkoli Nwa Nsukka,is set to put smiles on the faces of the less privileged this Easter, most especially, children and widows in Enugu State.
Speaking on the event, Okonkwo said: “The ‘Easter Carnival with Nkoli Nwa Nsukka’ is totally a non-profit event that is inspired by my love for education and the desire to put smiles on people’s faces. Sometimes we get caught up in the need to fend for ourselves so much that we forget to pause to remember those around us who are less privileged.”
The event which kicks off on Good Friday, April 2 and climaxing on Easter Sunday, April 4, is powered by Dano milk and supported by Enugu State government. the event will be graced by top celebrities including Patience Ozokwor, Eucharia Anonubi, Ngozi Ezeonu, Chiege Alisigwe, Nkiru Silvanus, Ebele Okaro, Kcee, Ken Erics, Fredrick Leonard, Zubby Michael and others.
Nkoli Nwa Nsukka, who is also an ambassador on youth development in Enugu State, stated further: “We are giving out gift items like Dano milk, educational materials, lunch boxes, school bags, and toys and bicycle for kids. I have over 800 pairs of shoes for hawkers, conductors and other people that move about with no shoes or slippers. I also have rice, tomatoes, salt, seasoning, wrappers and semovita for the widows.”
She added that this year’s carnival will be different form other years: “Since I started this carnival in 2015, this is actually my first time of hosting and empowering widows. Kids have always been my primary targets. Now I’m reaching out to the kids in different remote areas of Enugu State because of COVID-19 restrictions, and the youths in different markets. The event will be for widows on Easter Sunday and I have lots of activities piled up to make sure they have a memorable Easter. My expectation is just to see people happy.”
