As part of its corporate social responsibility, the AYV Charity Foundation with support from its partner supported over two hundred widows with food items worth over three hundred British pounds. The donation is to cushion the effects of COVID-19 on the livelihoods of these women.

The donation was made at Bassa Town in Waterloo, in the Western Rural District. The widows’ situation seems to have been most inadequately addressed by the government and there is no official statistics on the number of widows and their life conditions.

The intervention by AYV Charity Foundation is to cushion the effects of COVID-19 on the livelihoods of these women. Hajaratu Kamara AYV’s Miss University 2019 called on other well-meaning Sierra Leoneans to support more widows across the country.

She added that this donation is very important to them, as most of them have their families to take care of, and called on other well-meaning Sierra Leoneans to support more widows in the country. Some of the widows expressed their appreciation to the AYV Foundation and called on the government to support them during these hard times. This donation they said will help sustain them for a while but they stated that the government and other agencies should empower them and their children which will help them for a long time.
