Speaking during the handing over the cash and equipments to the beneficiaries in Lagos said the association had empowered and trained over 200 widows and orphans in different skills.

“Permit me to say that these are difficult times for you the widows and orphans. Consequently, we have fashioned out a more enduring and long lasting way to see that you are not only empowered to stand but also to help others find their footing as well. In January this year, the wife of the Vice President of Nigeria, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, catered for the training of 100 Navy widows in Abuja,” she said.
