An NGO distributes food to a retirement home

A non-governmental organization (NGO), Women Advancement for Economic and Leadership in Africa (WAELE), as part of its mandate to touch lives and uplift the vulnerable, has donated food items amounting to thousands of naira to a center for the elderly, The Amazing Grace Home for the Elderly located in the Kado area of ​​Abuja City Council in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The event which took place on Saturday, May 7, 2022, as part of the organization’s 18th anniversary, was honored by the staff and management of WAELE led by its Nigerian National Secretary, Hajiya Maryam Aliyu Gabdo, who replaced the founder, Otunba Basirat Nahibi (OON).

According to the founder, WAELE is committed to helping the elderly and vulnerable, which is part of the core mandate of the organization.

“Our world is bleeding. Our dear Africa is bleeding. We face unprecedented humanitarian needs and levels of forced displacement around the world. This means that for many, becoming displaced is a life sentence. This situation certainly concerns all of us. Among the unprecedented numbers of refugees and internally displaced people are tens of millions of women and adolescent girls. The call to action is an important platform. We are not here for the income, but for the outcome, WAELE AFRICA is scaling up women’s economic empowerment and leadership, reproductive health and rights, and peace and conflict resolution, through summits and of public meetings in conflict and war-torn countries in Africa,” she said.

She said the organization is always ready to support women to fully participate in economic decision-making, peace and conflict resolution and governance on the continent.

“We are fighting against violence against children, women and the elderly during the covid-19 pandemic. We share food and humanitarian aid with many families, orphanages and empowerment of widows. In the long term, it should be stressed that women should not be seen only as victims, but also as important actors for peace, stability, security and prosperity. Therefore, I would like to emphasize that the women, peace and security agenda is a top priority for WAELE AFRICA,” added Otunba Nahibi.

Founder of Amazing Grace Home for the Elderly, Mrs. Ifeanyinwa Mary Obegolu thanked WAELE for the donation and prayed for the founder, staff and management.
