Some 61 orphans of the Good Shepherd Home Orphanage at Abangoh, Bamenda, were happy recipients of several bags of rice and cartons of powder milk from Dr. Fru Garden of Eden international Healing and Research Foundation on Friday October 30, 2009.Presenting the gifts, the found of the Dr. Fru’s Garden of Eden International Healing and Research Founder, Dr. Fru Richard, equally enjoined the orphanage’s matron, Sister Jane Manka’a to use a medical plant called ” king plant” to improve on the health of the Orphans. He said “king plant” has several powers and performs wonders when used. Hailing the proprietor of the orphanage for putting smiles on the faces of the fatherless and motherless, Dr. Fru said without the care she is giving the orphans, some of them would have died from mental and emotional torments. “I encourage you to continue with your philanthropic work and do not be surprised to one day see one of the orphan s to be the Head of State of out great nation Cameroon”. He said his Foundation launched a health crusade in order to eradicate the greatest virus on earth which is ignorance and so to Sensitised people on how to live on balance diet and be free from diseases.
Dr. Fru emphasised that the gifts have no strings attached to them as he is not a politician. He called on the orphans to obey their mother, Sister Jane Manka’ a, who has chosen to sacrifice for them. Sister Jane Manka’a who was visibly elated with the gifts, said there was just no food in the orphanage and Dr. Fru came very timely to solve the problem. She said her orphanage has written to many organisations including the government but all have not thought it wise to reach out to her orphanage. According to her, Dr. Fru’s healing is genuine as he puts God first before his activities surprise that he quotes the Bible more than some of us Priests and Rev Sisters”.
Sister Jane explained that her Orphanage as of now has 62 orphans, five of them in the high school and 2l in secondary schools. “We run an annex in Batibo and need food seriously, she said while other orphanage ask for money and some materials from the relatives of the orphans before admitting them in their orphanages, the Good Shepherd Home Orphanage does not demand anything from whosoever before admitting an orphan . For his part, the Mezam Divisional Delegate for Social Affairs, Mbakwa Tayong Thomas who lauded Dr. Fru’s gesture, said time has come when Africans and Cameroonians should stop thinking that assistance can only come from Europe and America. He said he himself was an orphan at the age of six months, “but today I am somebody”.
The Delegate averred that he knew Dr. Fru only as a traditional healer not a philanthropist. The happy orphans thrilled the Dr. Fru’s delegation and journalists with choral singing and dancing.
