The i-VickyMends Foundation on Valentine’s Day marked its second anniversary with a celebration with widows.
The gesture was to show love to widows and to let them have a sense of belonging in the face of the void created by the departure of their partners and breadwinners.
The Foundation marked its second anniversary with about 45 widows within the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.
They were given food items, free souvenirs and free chocolates.
“We believe food parcel is a valuable lifeline when a family loses the breadwinner of the house to an accident, disease or even murder and this will at least lessen their burden for a week or two,” Founder of the Foundation Victoria Nana Amoh said.
“We chose the month of February because it is the month of love and as people express love to their loved ones, these widows need to be shown the necessary love and affection. We all know their spouses are no more and it’s painful when you bear all responsibilities in the family so it is our way of showing affection towards them.
“It’s our prayer that a few years to come, it wouldn’t be based on selection but will be opened to all for lots of widows to benefit from our gesture.”
She called for help from stakeholders, religious bodies, philanthropists and individuals who have interest to assist the Foundation achieve more and also impact positively in people’s lives.
i-VickyMends Foundation is a Charity organisation which is committed to bring positive changes in the lives of unprivileged and disadvantaged widows and put smiles on their faces.
