N/R: Samira supports 200 widows

The Samira Empowerment and Humanitarian Foundation (SEHF) has donated items including locally printed cloths, bags of rice, cooking oil, detergents and assorted drinks to some widows in the Northern Region.

The over 200 widows converged on Yong Duuni, a suburb of the Sagnarigu Municipality to receive the items on Tuesday, 18 December 2018.

This forms part of Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s wife’s empowerment project, which seeks to transform the lives of women and the marginalised in the society.

Addressing the widows, Mrs Bawumia said every individual at a point in life needs help and, therefore, underscored the need for people to help others once they are in a capacity to do so.

“And that is why I go the length and breadth of this country to support our women. We are coming from the Ashanti Region where we also supported 350 women with end-of-year festivity packages,” she stated.

Mrs Bawumia encouraged parents and guardians to ensure their children take full advantage of the government’s flagship Free Senior High School policy.

SEHF earlier this year piloted the “Safe Delivery” project in the East Gonja Municipal Assembly where Mrs Bawumia supported some women with safe delivery kits to help enhance maternal mortality in the area.

Meanwhile, the Sagnarigu Municipal Chief Executive, Iddrisu Mariam commended Mrs Bawumia for her generosity.

In her view, Ghana has not had a vibrant and active Second Lady like Mrs Bawumia since the First Republic. Ms Mariam prayed for Mrs Bawumia to succeed in her endeavours and further requested more support, especially with education and capacity-building.

For his part, the Director of the Northern Widows Agricultural Foundation (NWAF), Mr Issah Iddrisu, thanked Mrs Bawumia for her gesture.
