Speaking to journalists on what spurred her, the Founder/CEO When In Need Foundation,( WIN) Chief Dr. Chetachi Ecton Dikko, said her actions have always been based on what gives her happiness, as such, touching the lives of families positively in different ways, gives her so much happiness and good feelings of self actualization.

“Currently in Nigeria, a lot of people are starving, and I have done a lot for families and adults, and when you look at the children right now, the children are also starving, so, today is only for the children”, she said.

“What can you tell a woman that doesn’t have money to feed her children or her baby? What can you tell that mother, except what I’m doing right now, giving the mothers what I have right now, knowing that they may be included in those mothers that rarely don’t have any food for their children or for their child,” she added.

Dr. Chetachi maintained that despite running a self funded mission, the WIN foundation has been able to cover more than 27 states in the country, and intends to extend its humanitarian services across the 36 states, including the FCT.

“We are now in about 29 states, so as soon as I return from the United States, our train will start rolling from state to state.

On his side, the team leader of Kay Medicare Hospital, Pharmacist Ikechukwu Obassey stressed that WIN Foundation and Kay Medicare Hospital have always taken it up as their responsibility to touch the lives of people they feel are in need of medical care, without any form of segregation or sentiment.

“As you all know, today is the d-day where Kay Medicare in conjunction with ‘When In Need Foundation’ have deemed it necessary to extend that hand of impacting on every life in Nigeria, once again, to the downtrodden, and to every member of the society, irrespective of your tribe, irrespective of your religion; it’s not a political organization where some people are being discriminated, there is no delegate here, everybody is a member”,he stressed

A beneficiary, Mrs. Grace Ogbe said she had been blessed with this gesture, as she had previously sought after such services, but to no avail, until this opportunity came. “I have been to so many places, all was not going well, so when I heard of this, i decided to bring my baby, to see how God will do his thing for me, and I thank God for the attention they gave us so far. May God Almighty bless her the more”, she added

Another beneficiary, Sarah Christian who resides in Apo said “I really feel excited, it’s a good thing humans like us doing something for fellow humans, is very good, and our children will be appreciating this, by the time they are grown up, we’ll tell them this is what we received from Kay Medicare, they’ll be happy too that they are part of this; I’m happy that I’m part of this today.”
