The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tarkwa -Nsuaem in the Western Region, George Mireku Duker, on Easter Monday, feted over 500 widows in the constituency to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The donation, which was made devoid of party colours, saw a total of 550 hampers donated, containing assorted items to these vulnerable women, as a way to show love and care for the needy during the sacred period.

The annual event, which took place at UMaT Basic School, was part of the MP’s humanitarian initiatives for the underprivileged in society, particularly within the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipality.

Addressing the widows, Mr Duker, who is also the Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources in-charge of Mining said, the aim of the gesture, was to remind the beneficiaries that they are not left alone.

“By extending a helping hand to these widows, I aimed to bring a ray of light into their lives, reminding them that they are not alone and that they are cherished members of our beloved constituency,” he said.

According to Mr Duker, “Moments like this remind us of the power of compassion and the importance of standing together as a community”.

The colorful ceremony which was filled with touching stories and experiences shared by the widows, saw their faces light up with joy and gratitude, after receiving encouraging remarks from the MP, as well as the guests.

This is not the first time the Tarkwa MP, is making donations to the widows, which has become a yearly event to show love and care.

During the previous donation, Mr Duker, encouraged the widows not to give – up on God and that “through people,[God] is caring for His children.”

“This occasion is not to remember your sorrows, but to appreciate what God has done for us, stressing that indeed, let’s remember that God cares for all of us,” Mr Duker added.

The MP stated “We call on the gathering especially the widows to pray deep in their hearts and thank God for what He has done for us. We’ve not been disgraced, and we have not died. “

Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Tarkwa -Nsuaem, Mr Benjamin Kesse, noted that, the event was tailored to promote the welfare of widows and the disadvantaged in society, adding that “God has listened to your prayers.”

The underprivileged women, who were excited by the gesture, thanked Mr Duker for the yearly event, describing it as a respite and joy to them.

They also prayed for the life of the MP, as well as his family, saying “We seek God’s guidance and blessings for Mr Duker for what he is doing for widows in Tarkwa -Nsuaem.”
