As the world celebrates Christmas, The Beulah World Initiative has reached out to about 30 widows in Canaanland, Ota, Ogun State with gifts of food items as support for the Christmas celebration.
The event tagged ‘Christmas Support Outreach to Widows’ featured enlightenment sessions and special prayers for the widows and their families.
Speaking at the event, the Visioneer and Coordinator of Beulah World Initiative (BWI), Ms Chichi Ononiwu said that the gesture was intended to put smiles on the faces of the widows.
She said that the initiative was put together to help lighten the burdens and pressures Widows face around this Yuletide season.
“Most of them struggle to even be able to cook a decent meal for their kids. We tried to make that burden lighter by providing some part of the groceries needed for a decent meal on Christmas Day”.
She added that prayers were made for them for strength to move on with life and believe God for a new phase of life. Special presentations were also made for them to cope with the challenges of widowhood.
Ononiwu restated the commitment of the organisation which is to advance the quality of life of rural and suburban communities in sub-Saharan Africa, through the improvement of health, the support of education, the enhancement of social responsibility and poverty alleviation.
“Our areas of engagement to achieve these include medical and food outreaches, community impact projects, for instance, we hold outreaches every month in sub-urban and rural communities,” she explained.
