Reverend Fr. Mfa Mdooyonga Solomon of the St Augustine Parish, Makurdi in Benue State has gifted an elderly woman a house in return for her past widow’s mite generosity.
Solomon was attacked by bandits on 5 October 2020 in his parish with his house stripped of all valuables.
His phones, laptop, ATM cards, clothes, shoes, an undisclosed amount of money all were taken away.
The woman heard his travail and decided to offer some succour, in the best way she could afford.
She went to the parish and gave Solomon six eggs, in sympathy.
Days after, the Rev. Fr. decided to return the visit of his ‘benefactor’.
He found the woman living in a shack and was possibly shocked that she could have such a heart of gold despite her condition.
He decided to repay the woman in her own coin.
He launched a crowdfunding for her and used the proceeds to build a bungalow for the woman.
The incredible story, which has gone viral on Twitter was related on Twitter Thursday by Duke of Benue @Collins Uma
“Robbers attacked Rev Fr Solomon Mfa (St Augustine Parish, Makurdi). This old lady brought him 6 eggs to sympathise with him. He went to visit her and saw where she was living. Then he crowd-funded and built her this house. She moved in 2 days ago.
This is Love”, The Duke of Benue tweeted.
