NGO to empower widows, children


    A non-governmental organisation, Rose of Sharon Foundation, has appealed to journalists to propagate the empowerment of widows and vulnerable children in the society.

    Speaking during a courtesy visit to PUNCHPLACE in Magboro, Ogun State, the group’s founder, Mrs. Folorunso Alakija, said it was set up as a non-profit organisation to support widows and their children.

    Alakija explained that since the foundation commenced operations in 2008, it had established presence in Lagos, Ogun and Benue states.

    “We need the media to help put word out to widows out there who may be in need of help,” she said.
