As part of the mother’s day celebration, The Wendy’s Project in collaboration with Westline Entertainment celebrated widows in Sekondi-Takoradi on 24th May at YMCA premises in Takoradi.
The seventeen (17) widows who are from various parts of Sekondi Takoradi were treated to good music, food and interaction with the organizers as well as souvenirs. Speaking at the event, Emmanuel Ampaabeng, the CEO of Westline Entertainment mentioned that “we sympathize with you our mothers who by no fault of yours are in this situation. We have always thought of the perfect time to celebrate you and today being mother’s day, we felt it is the right time to do this.”
According to the organizers, the event won’t be the last time that they will engage the widows but will find ways to empower them as well through economic and other educational programmes.
Speaking to the widows virtually, Tina Versatraate, the CEO The Wendy’s Project said that “as a single mum myself, I really wish you all the best. I know it is not easy at times, it might seem that life is too hard but there is always light at the end of the tunnel so look at the beautiful things in your life; I know you have the right attitudes, I know that you live for your children as I do myself and you know children are the future and the future is bright. I know you guys will make it happen for your children. It’s so important to give them everything that you have in yourself, to make them glow, to make them blossom, to make them more beautiful than we are because children are the future. Good luck in all you do.”
The Founder of Widows Federation Ghana, Madam Rosemary Acquah expressed profound gratitude on behalf of the widows who benefited from the celebration from The Wendy’s Project and Westline Entertainment. She expressed that “May God reward you in all you do and give you long life. May God bless every member of The Wendy’s project, we cannot thank you enough.”
