Lodge Amawbia for the distribution, that the items were part of the donations from Her Excellency Dr (Mrs) Dame Faka Jonathan during her recent visit to the State on October 4, 2014 for the South East Widows Empowerment programme. She extolled the virtues of Dame Patience Jonathan in caring for the needy, and noted that such initiatives complement CAFɒs role in providing succor to the indigent and down trodden in the society.

According to Chief (Mrs) Obiano ?CAF? is committed to supporting the welfare programmes of Chief Willie Obiano administration which promotes strong and healthy families? through assisting and supporting vulnerable groups amongst Ndi Anambra? to feel the impact of government? and eventually contribute to the socio-economic development of the state.?

Mrs. Obiano assured the widows that the items are not exhaustive but are being distributed in line with CAFɒs ?phasing of the provisions and support to them ?to make sure that the empowerment materials eventually get round to others who could not benefit now. The donations carefully spread with every community encouraged to send a coordinator and three widows to collect their share and take back home for distribution.
