A church in Delta, Calvary World Outreach, has put smiles on the faces of over 500 widows in Owa Oyibo, the Ika North east local government area country home of Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta state.
The widows were gathered from all over the local government council with a view to change their plight and give them hope for living.
The founder and the president of the church, Apostle Chris Eruemulor, decried the plight of widows, hence he decided to encourage them so as to feel a sense of belonging to society.
According to him, the gesture was organized as an appreciation to God for his blessing to him and his family and promised that he would continue to carry out the gesture as part of his contribution to the welfare of widows.
The event was attended by the state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, who expressed delight at the humanitarian gesture of Apostle Eruemulor.
He said the church founder has shared part of his wealth with the less privileged who cannot repay him.
"l am delighted because Eruemulor made God the centre of this empowerment programme, we have heard the word of God, praised God and prayed, this is what God loves and l have learnt a lot from this programme today which l will abide by.
“I learnt there is a list of the widows present here, l will like to have it so that l can also support them in my own little way,” he said.
He charged the widows to wholeheartedly trust in God and live by the word of God stating that it was only God that could uplift them through the help of those around them.
The items presented to the widows include wrappers, cartons of indomie, bags of rice, chickens among others to the over 500 widows.
