Women, Widows Receive Free Food Items From NGO In Kogi

An NGO, Doyin and Susan Foundation, has distributed food items to 500 widows and vulnerable women in Kogi, as part of its humanitarian gesture.

The group distributed the palliatives to the women on Thursday in Isanlu, a rural community in Yagba East Local Government Area of Kogi.

The Executive Director of the NGO, Adedoyin Ibikunle-Eshanumi, said the gesture was to support the vulnerable women at difficult periods.

According to her, the initiative is part of the NGO’s routine humanitarian programme to ease the current economic hardship occasioned by the removal of the fuel subsidy.

She said that the vulnerable women and widows, who lack visible means of livelihood, were the most affected group in the society.

“This is a routine humanitarian programme that we carry out from time to time.

“We empowered over 400 widows during the Easter celebration and 300 women immediately after the removal of fuel subsidy in June.

“We distribute food items during all festive periods and we will continue to do that as part of our humanitarian services.

”The gesture is part of our foundation’s vision to reach out to the indigent and vulnerable in the society, to alleviate their sufferings,” she said.

Some of the beneficiaries,  Modupe Johnson, and Rukayat Abdullahi, appreciated the NGO for their support.

“We are very grateful to Chief Doyin Ibikunle-Eshanumi for always alleviating our sufferings and making us happy. May God bless her,” Johnson said.

Items distributed included semovita, rice, seasoning, noodles, salt, spaghetti, and clothing material among others.
