The Guinness WorId Record holder, Hilda Baci on Sunday urged the general populace to support widows in the society.
Baci, while displaying her culinary skills to raise one million Naira to assist and empower a widow to be self-reliant, stated that she’s also glad that her feat pushed a lot of people to go beyond themselves.
She then told newsmen that her love for widows made her to support the initiative organised by The Duke of Somolu Productions, a theatrical play producing outfit.
“There is still so much to be done when it comes to supporting widows. There is need to get them employed, give them words of encouragements, create empowerment and also teach them how to grow their businesses.
“However, it does not necessarily have to be cash all the time, but there is so much to be done for the widows.
“They need to be shown love and kindness. We also need to show them that it’s possible for them to move beyond their present state.
“They still have to move forward because the tragedy of losing one’s love can lead to a space of depression, so much that one forgets what one is capable of doing.
“If they are getting constant encouragement and there are reminders that they still have so much to look forward to, the sky will be their limit,” she said.
