It was in 1985 that Msgr. Akam made a vow to the Almighty God that for the rest of his life, he would have in his heart, a soft spot for the poor. The special love for the poor culminated in the construction of VILLA MISERICORDIA DEI, home for the physically challenged, motherless babies and the orphans. Already in this Home, there are 41 disabled young men and women in different levels of primary and secondary education. Five of them are already graduates from different Universities in the country - all are beneficiaries of Msgr.
