A Widow, Mrs Nwobodo Obioma had a reason to smile during the Christmas Celebration, as she received a free donation of ₦20,000 to boost her groundnut business.
Mrs Nwobodo lost her husband, Mr Ikpeazu Nwobodo, to the cold hands of death in 2013. The husband who died of diabetes was a successful palm wine seller, in Benin City. Mrs Nwobodo had just a daughter for her late husband, and since the death of the man, life has been miserable for her. Presently she sells groundnut to earn a living. She lives all alone, as her only daughter who is married lives with her husband.

It was a big surprise for her, when The Voice of Divine Truth International Outreach team visited her at her residence in the Ikpoba Hill area of Benin, to wipe her tears away. The sum of ₦20,000 was presented to her to support her groundnut business. She was obviously elated, exclaiming that it was the first time since the demise of her husband to experience such magnanimity from a total “stranger”. Tears of joy flowed freely from her eyes while thanking God for remembering her in her moment of affliction and sending His ‘angels’ to visit her.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
Our target is to empower 1000 Widows with free cash grants, to enable them to start or boost their petty businesses. The goal of this project is to economically empower poor widows to improve their livelihood and be able to cater for their families.
Please note that the videos and pictures of all our charitable activities are not intended to ‘impress or show off’ to anybody, rather it is our practical way of teaching humanity how to love one another.
We are showing you this video of one of our widows’ empowerment activities
1. To create awareness for the plight of hapless widows globally, who are traumatized, oppressed, impoverished and abandoned by government, religious organizations and the society?
2. To practically teach you, that service to humanity is the only true ‘religion’ that God recognizes (James 1:27), and that the religion you practice is meaningless before God if you fail to help the poor and the needy around you.
3. To inspire you to join this campaign to lift poor widows and their families out of poverty. Look around you, there are poor widows struggling for survival. Emulate us by supporting them with ₦20,000 to boost their petty businesses (Look for poor widows in your locality and give them the money DIRECTLY).
4. To inspire religious organizations (especially the church, my constituency), to begin to promote the cause of love and our shared humanity, over and above religious rituals and dogmas.
