In 1994, my father was involved in a fatal car accident and he died on the spot while I was still a student in the University. My mother later died few years after my dad passes away. My world fell apart and my family support system unexpectedly crumbled. I am the oldest child among six siblings.
This tragic and life changing experience was the turning point for me and the beginning of a new chapter in my life. Life became very hard for me and my family. I shoulder the responsibilities for my family as the oldest child. I experienced rejection and abandonment from my parent’s friends and relatives.
I learnt through this experience to trust and depend on God for everything. God allowed my experience to give birth to my purpose in life which is to HELP THE HELPLESS in the society.
In 2008, my wife, Favor Wazota Agbu and I, Mathias Luka Agbu founded the Luka Agbu Memorial Foundation which is named in memory of my late father Rev. Luka D. Agbu as a platform to fulfill this heavenly Vision.
