On the 8 of July 2020, FLEP distributed food items and vegetable seedlings to some underprivileged widows and their families in Tafawa Balewa community in the Bauchi state with the support of Children’s Mission and The Navigators Nigeria.
This was FLEP’s effort to alleviate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the widows of Tafawa Balewa, to ensure that the widows and their families are safe and fed even as the world fights against Covid-19.
241 women benefited from the incentive packages which included relief items such as rice, corn, beans, vegetable oil, magi, salt and vegetable seedlings (okra, pepper and spinach).
Mrs Elizabeth (Women Leader/beneficiary) said: “There are so many widows suffering here, it was God who opened your eyes to see the suffering of the widows in Tafawa Balewa”. The women of Tafawa Balewa expressed gratitude to Full Life Empowerment Programme (FLEP) and her donors, for considering them and coming to their aid.
One of the beneficiaries stated that “we received big help today and we are grateful. May God continue to bless everyone who has reached out to us with all that their heart desires in life”.
All they needed was a little support to survive. The same is true for other widows that we are yet to reach. How Can I Support a Widow in Tafawa Balewa?
