TOUCHED perhaps by the obvious scarcity and indigence currently sweeping across the land, the wife of the Enugu State Governor, Mrs Monica Ugochi Ugwuanyi has conducted a one –day free medical outreach in Nsukka for the purpose of improving the health challenges of women of the area and repositioning them for better productivity in their various areas of endeavour.

Mrs. Ugwuanyi’s   outreach programme held at Township Primary School Field, Opposite Access Bank, Nsukka recently, which covered free health screening, upbringing of children,care for the needy/disable/vulnerable and assortment of items for women empowerment- wheel barrows, wheel chairs, hair dryers, wash hand basins, grinding machines, coolers, bags of rice, feeding bottles and cartons of Indomie noodles, amongst others including appropriate   pep-talks to encourage the beneficiaries utilise the package of the outreach for the improvement of their socio-economic and health status.

She urged them to undertake small scale businesses and complement the efforts of their husbands in the onerous task of providing for the families, pointing out that, “ the increasing challenges of daily living now has made it inevitable that wives should assist”.

Ugwuanyi also used the opportunity to advise women against exposing their children to hawking in the streets.
