Onitsha-NO fewer than 360 widows in Ifitedunu Community, near Onitsha, are to receive N4 million from an NGO, Mike Okoye Ezezulu Foundation, to take care of their health and expand their businesses.

Mr Chukwuma Anatogu, Chairman of the Foundation, told newsmen yesterday that the money was earmarked to cover the medical bills and cash support for the rural widows.

Anatogu said the foundation placed the weak widows on N5,000 monthly as medical treatment and quarterly medical checkup by a commissioned hospital.

“The foundation has given widows, who are still strong and capable of doing some form of business, a cash support ranging from N25,000 to N50,000.”
