Mrs Zuwaira Ibrahim and Mrs Raila Hosea who spoke on behalf of soldiers widow in Bauchi thanked the charity organization for remembering them, adding, “before now we thought we were on our own, we are happy that there are still kind hearted people in this world that are willing to help others.”
In the same vain, those in Jos, Plateau State, noted, “For a very long time after the death of our husbands we have been on our own, this is the first time anyone has done something like this for us. We pray to Almighty God to continue to bless and reward them for their efforts and replenish their pockets”.
They also called on their fellow widows to remain steadfast and not to lose faith but they should rather commit themselves to building the lives of the children.
