Drawing inspiration from Biblical quotations, Dr. Fru announced that GENIWA has the burning spirit to give not because they have much but because they do it to those who are in need. “We are conscious that the Word of God (the Bible) recommends giving. It is more blessed to give than to receive, so says the Bible” he emphasized adding that it is for this reason that it has become a tradition that at the end of every year, GENIWA celebrates with the underprivileged in society.  More so Dr. Fruh also told his August quests that they should feel free to get to them in case they encounter any problem and believes that GENIWA can provide the solution to it,” feel free to approach us”.
