Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sonaira Business World, Sonia Omon Obehi Ovuehor has once again reiterated her desire for empowering vulnerable people in society, including widows, as she decided to walk her talk by sponsoring a programme for 500 widows.
The outreach dubbed, Independence Day Widow Tour is being organised by Miss Mainland Africa Beauty Queen as part of the annual rite of her tenure as a pageant queen.
The Widow Tour Lagos Outreach, which will hold at Christ Embassy Mainland Church on October 1, 2021, will empowerment 500 widows who will also benefit from a largesse that includes foodstuff such as bags of rice, oil and spaghetti among others.
Ovuehor, the CEO of Sonaira Business World, is renowned for philanthropy and has a penchant for providing opportunities for youths and stay-at-home mothers.
“I cannot let an opportunity to help women, especially widow, passes by without doing anything,” she said.
Speaking further, she praised Miss Mainland for coming up with an initiative that recognises women who need all the assistance society can render to them. “Widows are often the most neglected group of people in our society who are most deserving of empowerment opportunities,” she stated.
