The annual donation started on Christmas Eve with over 1,500 donations made to widows from Agogo, Konongo, Ejura, and other surrounding communities. Ohene Kwame is giving out rice, chicken, and oil to a rough total of over 2,000 widows by end of the project.
Over the past years, Ohene Kwame Frimpong has made it a vow to assist the needy and vulnerable especially aged women and widows.
Africa’s inadequate social care system for the aged especially women has driven thousands into abject poverty — depriving them the chance to celebrate global holiday festivities like Christmas. Several national policies have been implemented by governments to alleviate the plight of these poor and needy aged women, but the gap is still increasing.
“This is an essential event we intend to rotate annually as our core vision in helping ease the financial burden on widows and poor aged women, especially in rural communities – by granting them goodies, it goes a long way to ease their pain of loss or need” — Ohene Kwame Frimpong explained.
