The founder of the Enemona Just Foundation, Mr. David Gabriel has promised to complete and hand over the new church building the Foundation is constructing in Inele – Ugoh, Olamaboro council area of Kogi State by April to the community for use.

Mr. Gabriel stated that the gesture was in pursuit of his vision of helping humanity and empowering communities for sustainable development to keep rural communities at relative par with those in urban cities.
He said that the church building which will be donated to the United Evangelical Church (UEC) by April ending was for the people of the community to have a befitting place of worship, get close to their God and use that as a means of straying away from crimes in the case of youths.
Gabriel through his Enemona Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation founded out of share vision for the vulnerable, also has passion for the less privileged in society, community development and nation building.
“The Foundation was born out of the need to alleviate the hardship faces by the less privileged in term of poverty, poor health and educational system as well as the increasing economic challenges.
