On Monday 11, 2013, the team stormed Ngie-Njap, Mbot I and II, part of Nterbang quarter in Wat an Moh in Nkambe. Addressing hundreds of beneficiaries and quoting from the Book of Corinthians, she said God loves the cheerful giver. Giving she said is complementing God’s work on earth. Flanked by SDF district chairman, Mbeh Wlifred, District Secretary Sajio Amindou, District Treasurer Patience Mangoh, Mary Awudu proceeded by telling the women who turned out in the 10 distribution points that the soil never fools.

“From each breath you take, to the house you live in. From your farms, to your children, to your ability to till the soil and plant, God has graciously given you all that you have, and the ability to do all that you can do. There is nothing given to you, that does not flow from the hand of God”. Let these seeds multiply that in the next years we should be able to harvest red maize and white maize”.
“I am here to give you in the name of Hon. Awudu Mbaya and it would be bad of me if I do not share with you. In fact many others will follow me, your sons and daughters, husbands and wives, the difference is that I strive to be a cheerful giver. Don’t hold back when it comes to giving. In Psalm 84:11 it says, for the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. He withholds no good thing from us, and we are not to withhold any good thing from those in need. She emphasized. Accordingly, Mary Awudu said the gesture is to recognize the efforts rural women have been sacrificing amidst climatic challenges to feed the cities. “I am most conscious of is how much rural women do for their families and communities. And how much more we all need to do to support them so that they can achieve improved livelihoods and food security in a way that is sustainable and I am sure this could be done by providing them with quality seeds, inputs and modern farming techniques”, she told this report.
