As the economic situation in Nigeria continues to bite harder, many indigent homes are uncertain about the sources of their next meal. The condition has become even grimmer as the 2022 Christmas celebration approaches. Food scarcity, and exorbitant rates of essential commodities particularly rice and vegetable oil, has further exacerbated the plights of the poor, and vulnerable persons in society. In the midst of these uncertainties, help has come the way of 25 widows in Enugu State as they benefited from WACOL’s donations at her Silver Jubilee event.

This initiative from the organization was done to mark the 25th-anniversary celebration which happened at the Amedeo Event Centre Enugu on December 8th, 2022. Some of the items received by the widows include bags of rice, gallons of vegetable oil, and cash gifts.

The widows who expressed joy and excitement upon receiving these gift items offered words of prayer for the organization.

One of the happy widows whose name is Mrs. Ifeoma Nnaji Nwobodo who hails from Emene in Enugu, thanked WACOL for their continuous support to her family. She recalled that WACOL came to her rescue when she reported a  case of widowhood practices against her by her brothers-in-law, adding that apart from the free legal aid she received at the office, they had continued to assist her financially, as well as through food donations both during the COVID 19 Pandemic, and now at the silver jubilee event.

“ I can’t thank WACOL enough for their good deeds towards me. I only beg God to bless Prof Joy Ezeilo the founder of the organization, and all the WACOL staff for always supporting the poor and helpless widows like me” she stated.

While donating the items, the Founder of WACOL Prof Joy Ngozi Ezeilo (SAN), advised the widows to always look up to God for assistance, She assured them that WACOL will continue to support them in the best possible way. Ezeilo urged them to be good ambassadors of the organization by also assisting other women especially those in similar vulnerable conditions.
