Nigerian actor and comedian, Williams Uchemba, is not only loved by many because of the hilarious roles he plays on screen, but for his philanthropic nature and genuine concern for people who are in need of help.
The celebrity has once again taken to his Instagram page to talk about the beneficiaries of his latest act of charity.
Uchemba shared a photo showing two young girls in their home which looks very much like a shanty. The actor disclosed that he met them in December 2019 when he came to the slum where they reside for a Christmas food donation outreach, and he was drawn to them by their intelligence.
"December last year I came to this slum to give them food for the Christmas holiday and whilst I was distributing food I saw this young girls studying in-front of their house ( I mean the house you see in the picture above). I asked them some questions and I was amazed at how intelligent they are. I asked for their parents but they said they’ve gone out to look for their daily meal," the actor wrote.

Uchemba noted that the area is a dangerous one for the young girls and they could be prone to all sort of malicious treatment from abusers. He also shared how the shanty where the girls live is directly under a telco mast. For this reason, he partnered with a friend abroad and took the decision to get the girls and their parents out of the slum.
He said: "I have contacted a housing agent to look for a good apartment, so we can furnish it and move them in, and Dr Nancy has agreed to put them on scholarship in any school of their choice till they graduate from the University."
According to him, they are not the only families living in such terrible condition. He said there are several others who also share the same fate as the girls, and encourage people to reach out to offer assistance.

This is not the first time the actor has helped people living in terrible conditions. Some months ago, Legit.ng reported that Uchemba touched the hearts of people online, after sharing a story of how he came to the rescue of a crippled woman and her abandoned kids. The woman identified as Patricia lost the use of her two legs, after she was jilted by her husband, and left all alone to fend for their seven kids. However her story took a complete turn after the much loved comic act became aware of their predicament and decided to do something about it.
