We as Cometogether Widows and Orphans Organization (CTWOO) team arrived at the venue at 11:20AM. We were received by the Chairperson Pentagon Self-Help Group Mr Luka Maina and the Vice Chairperson Pastor Tabitha who ushered us in the New Testament Church where the widows had already gathered.
After settling Pastor Tabitha invited the guest pastor, Reverend Patrick Simiyu from Patsim Advisory Networks, to open the meeting with a word of prayer and a sermon. The pastor encouraged the widows and urged them to never undermine themselves due to their status. He went ahead and identified himself as one of them and one who understands their plight as he is a son of a widower. He concluded by emphasizing on the importance of economic and social stability among widows. Then the Pentagon Self-help Group Officials presented to him a gift as an appreciation of his good work.
