Mrs Margaret Sambo lost her husband to the cold hands of death 10 yrs ago, a bitter experience that left her completely devastated. Ever since, she had to fend for her 5 children all alone without any support from the husband’s family. Before the demise of her husband she was running a thriving smoked fish business, using the proceeds to support the family. But after the death of her husband, the enormous responsibility to cater for the children put undue financial pressure on the business and it eventually collapsed in 2015. She then resorted to doing menial jobs in factories in order to provide for her family. This she did for many years until she met The Voice of Divine Truth International Outreach team members recently, in a Widows event organized by our beloved sister, Bunmmy Olu.
After a counseling section with Mrs. Margaret Sambo, when she visited our office recently, the team decided to support her with a free cash grant of N25,000 to enable her revive her smoked fish business which she stopped in 2015. Today, our team member, Miss Queeneth Okoi accompanied her to a cold room in Ogba-Ikeja to purchase some cartons of fish to commence her business once again.
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 so as to
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 pictures (video) of one of our widows’ empowerment
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.
