AJ’s Help The Needy Project donates to widows in Okere District

AJ’s Help The Needy Project has donated assorted food items to widows in Deveme in the Okere District of the country.

It was aimed at supporting the vulnerable women and assuring them of the NGOS’s love and care.

The donated items included bags of rice, oil, boxes of mackerel, biscuits and some soft drinks.

Founder of AJ’s Help The Needy Project, Anita Opoku-Appiah said donating to vulnerable groups, especially widows had been her heart desire due to the stigmatisation and hardship such people face in some communities.

“Women go through a lot and the plight of poor widows is quite enormous. Some of them have challenges of taking good care of their children after their husbands die. This is heartbreaking and the reason we have taken it upon ourselves to support such persons occasionally,” she added.

She also urged the public to desist from taking widows through cruel widowhood rites, which are common in many rural areas.

Wrong accusations of widows, she said, should also not be encouraged.
The widows, receiving the items tanked the NGO for the generous act and hoped for more of such support as often as possible.

The main aim of the AJ’S Help The Needy Project is to make generous donations to the less privileged in the society especially, orphans and widows to help support them make ends meet.
