Eucharia Anunobi has released photos from the posthumous birthday celebration held in honour of her late son, Raymond.
Eucharia had on Friday, February 16, 2018, gone to visit the motherless babies home where she shared gifts with them. In her statement, she said she usually visits motherless babies home where she gives out gifts yearly and that this year won’t be different
“I am going to do it the way my son and I had always done it and I would give out some of his personal effects. Normally, when someone dies, you do not touch their things for about a year. For instance, if a man’s wife dies he is not expected to touch her things or dispose of them till after a year.
“Initially, I decided to do the same thing but I later changed my mind and that is why I donated some of his things to a government-owned motherless babies’ home and also to the boys at the Special Correctional Centre for the Boys. I am doing this because I am a humanitarian and to let the motherless babies know that we love them,” she said.
However, on Thursday, February 22, 2018, the veteran actress released photos from the charity event she held in honour of her son. In one of the photos where she is seen cutting the birthday cake flanked by friends she captioned it with a quote
“This is thanking all the great people who came out to join me celebrate my late son, Raymond Ekwu’s post houmous 16th birthday at one of the orphanages in Lagos last Friday, the 16th February.”
Eucharia Anunobi lost her son, Raymond to sickle cell anaemia, on August 22, 2017, he died at the age of 15 and was a product of the marriage between her and ex-husband, Charles Ekwu.
