Nri Kingdom Honors Dr. Chinwe Nduka-A Woman With a Heart of Gold

By Uchendu Precious Onuoha

According to Albert Schweitzer, ”The only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve”

That is the true picture of Dr.{Mrs} Chinwe Nduka. She sought and found how to serve her people and community, and not only has she found happiness but Honor, as the people in return have given the honor to whom honor is due. To honor someone means to show him/her special attention as well as respect. However, it’s expected that a person who is deserving of such attention and respect has done something worthy.

On December 31, 2019, the ancient Nri kingdom was agog to bestow one of the highest Chieftaincy titles in the land ”ANYAFULUGO” to a woman with a heart of gold, a woman of substance, virtue, intellectual, philanthropist, a distinguished and an accomplished medical practitioner based in the U.SA, Dr. Chinwe Nduka. Chinwe, is a woman, wife, and mother, who has an unquenchable love to use her resources and profession for the welfare and advancement of her community from far away, from the United States of America.

”It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us…This is where our love for each other must start” {Mother Teresa}

As the title ”ANYAFULUGO” depicts, Chinwe indeed is a rare breed who has shown love to her roots to proof that charity begins from home.

Why She Was Honored

Dr. Chinwe {Anyafulugo}and her husband, Dr. Clement Nduka {Ikenga Nri} are the pioneers of the Nduka Foundation.

”Life’s persistent and most urgent question is ”what are you doing for others”

Dr. Chinwe through her numerous philanthropic activities has tremendously impacted the Nri kingdom that it was deemed right to honor her with the chieftaincy award. The event which was held at the Ebede primary school premises attracted a mammoth crowd and many dignitaries from the community and beyond which include, Oba Kelvin Obiegbunam {Ochendo} PG, Nri Progress Union, Hon.
