What people are saying
My name is Immaculate. My husband died six years ago leaving me with seven stubborn children. No job, no business. My children and I especially the grown up ones engaged in doing menial jobs for people just for us to feed. I borrowed money here and there, paying back became a problem to me. For this reason, I went into hiding.
I eventually identified with DWCAF. One day, I came to the programme very early hoping to at least share from the snacks that is always shared after each program, I was very hungry. Unfortunately, there was no program that day, I didn’t get the information. Later, I summoned courage and called the Mummy as we fondly call her and to my utmost surprise, she came to meet me. After explaining my predicament to her, she first bought me food and then asked “what can you do if the organization gives you little money now.”I said I can fry Puff Puff. She simply smiled and asked again “do you have buyers” I said yes, I know some schools I can even supply to. Surprisingly, she said “let’s go to the market, I need to buy the ingredients for you myself. The way am looking at you, if I give you this money, you will end up buying the whole food in this canteen.” That was how we eventually went to the market and we bought all the materials/ingredients needed for the business. Today, I am very grateful. God bless DWCAF!
My name is Chioma Erasmus. I am a native of Mbaise in Imo state but I live in Lagos with my children. I detested going to Widow’s Organization because of some funny stories I heard, but one mama Mrs. Ndu, we attend the same church, and she’s equally a widow. She has been telling me so much good things about DWCAF.
Finally I came. The mama was absolutely right. From the opening prayers to the fantastic and mind blowing testimonies of other women, my life was deeply transformed. I also went home that day with a hand full of clothes.
Sometimes last year, the organization gave me money to boost up my business which was almost crashing. I sell fairly used shoes. Even when my house rent expired, I called all the people that I know, there was no help and my landlord was threatening to throw me out of the one room I was managing with my five children. Eventually, I took the matter to DWCAF. I got a positive response. I don’t even know how to say thank you. I pray for GOD’s blessing on DWCAF. They are really different.
My name is Carol Oladapo. I am from Delta State but I live in Lagos. A friend of mine introduced me to DWCAF. Fortunately for me they were sharing wrapper and food items that very day and I queued up. When it got to my turn, surprisingly I got everything as was given to old members unlike in other Widows Forum where I belonged. As if that was not enough, Mummy (Coordinator) later announced that there’s an opportunity to learn Tailoring (fashion & designing) free of charge. I indicated interest amongst others. The following week, I was taken to the place of training. Even during the time of my training, mummy cares from time to time to check, she also provided all the items/materials I needed for easy learning. Today I can sow very well and I have my own shop. GOD BLESS DWCAF.
My name is Blessing Moses. I am a widow with four children. My husband died when the kids were still very tender. I was forced to leave my husband’s house by my husband’s people because I am not from their tribe. Unfortunately, I was accused of killing my husband. Those bad old days (sobs) I was moving from place to place begging for help. Over the years, my children have really grown up though, but things were not still okay. Eventually I came across this foundation (DWCAF) my life was transformed not only by the constant supply of food stuff but by the motivational teachings and encouragements.
One day mummy called me on phone and asks” if you are given little money to start up a little business what will you do” without any hesitation, I said plantain sales. Surprisingly, the next day she gave me money for the business. Today I am a different person. LONG LIVE DWCAF!
