As part of activities lined up to mark the birthday of the Senator – Elect, Zone 3 in Kaduna State, Barrister Sunday Marshall Katung, support groups under the auspices of Divas and Influencers for SMK, have presented gifts to ECWA Widows Training School Samaru Kataf, and Rafiki Orphanage Home Ungwan Rimi, all in Zango Kataf Local Government Area.


Presenting the gifts at the weekend, the Chairman of the occasion and former Zango Kataf Council Chairman, Mr. Christopher Haruna commended the initiators of the program for choosing to show love and put smiles on the faces of the less privileged.


He urged other well meaning individuals to always see the need to care for especially widows and the needy in the society, so as to attract more blessings from God.


Speaking on behalf of the two groups, leader of the group “Influencers for SMK, Emmanuel Junior Zakka pointed out that the groups decided to buy and donate the items to the ECWA Widows Training School and Rafiki Orphanage Home because they are aware the Senator-elect holds the two places dearly in his heart.

He explained that all the items donated were bought based on needs after they had earlier conducted a need assessment in the two centres.


In his remark, the Senator-elect, who was represented by the Executive Chairman, Zango Kataf Local Government Area, Mr Francis Sani noted that though he always celebrate his birthday with Rafiki Orphanage home and ECWA Widows Training School, this year’s celebration was special because of the level of love shown by the group.

Katung, who used the occasion to appreciate the people that believed in him and stood with him through out his life’s journey, called on all to take up the challenge of touching lives positively each time they have the opportunity.



Responding separately, the coordinators of the two benefiting schools, appreciated the groups for coming to their aid, even as they prayed God to reward all those who spared the resources to put smiles on their faces when they least expected.
