Over 322 widows in the Dormaa East District of Bono-Ahafo have been feted as part of this year’s Mother’s Day celebration. The widows were each given a bag of rice, oil, mackerel and assorted drinks to take home and were also treated to some high life music, food, drinks and savories at the party. The organizer of the event, 26 year old Philanthropist, Francisca Dei Yeboah, a graduate of the University of Development Studies who hails from Wamfie in the Dormaa East District, explained to Develop Ghana Newspaper that she started the project to feed needy people in her District last year. She said through her own effort, she fed the aged last year and was also able to raise over six thousand Ghana cedis on her own to fete the widows on this year’s Mother’s Day. Miss Yeboah noted that this is her little contribution towards the wellbeing of the needy in the community. She said her objective to bring the widows together is among others to create a platform to share experiences, offer advice and also console each other. She called on the youth to also contribute their widow’s might in order to bring comfort and happiness to the needy in their communities. The Dormaa East District Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Emmanuel Hinneh, who took the widows through the rights of a widow, encouraged the women not to hesitate to report issues of abuse by their in laws to the proper authorities such as the Legal Aid board, CHRAJ and DOVVSU for help. He also called on the community to join in the fight for the rights of widows and educated the widows on laws that protect the rights of widows. Mr. Hinneh, advised the widows to work hard to put their children through school and always save the little they have for the future of their children. Dignitaries that graced the occasion included the MP for Dormaa East, Williams Sabi and the DCE for Dormaa East, Frank Kwadwo Kumi. The MP donated an amount of two hundred Ghana Cedis while the DCE donated 300 Ghana Cedis towards the occasion.
