MORE WIDOWS BENEFITS' FROM THE FOUNDATION PROJECT 50
Three(3)more widows benefits' from the Cosmos Ndukwe Foundation’s PROJECT 50, a comprehensive initiative that would see fifty (50) widows benefiting in the first phase, from the Foundation’s building and furnishing of decent bungalows for indigent widows found in our various villages and hinterlands. The Project apart from helping to realize the United Nation’s Goal #11 of the Sustainable Development Goal is also aimed at ensuring access to safe and affordable housing;
The 3 benefitting widows are;
i. Madam Lucy Onuoha, from Amankalu Alayi
ii. Madam Tessy Orji Jeremiah from Elu Akanu Item and
iii. Madam Jenny Ogbonnaya Ogudu
From Elugwu Akanu Item all in Bende LGA of Abia State.
These widows found among us who suffer all forms of inhibitions, not by choice, but largely for deprivations that have become the lot of such women who were not lucky enough to have decent accommodation bequeathed by their deceased husbands. These women often live in hardly habitable places which they share with rodents and dangerous creatures at the expense of their lives.
The N1.5m modest three bedroom bungalows furnished to taste has been completed and donated to them, bringing the number of such uniform houses built for widows by the Foundation across rural communities in Abia State to 14. It is the tradition of the Foundation to equally make provision in cash and other materials to enable these widows fend for themselves over a given period of time.
Project 50 is a multi million naira initiative which obviously would weigh seriously on the lean financial strength of the Foundation. It is against this background that we urge our members while we also invite sister and donor Agencies to contribute generously towards the realization of this initiative.
To help promote this or any other cause by the Foundation,
