The Presiding Member of the Denkyembour District Assembly, Mr. Erastus Ali, has distributed food items to 250 widows in Akwatia.

These included bags of rice, mackerel and fruit drinks.

He said it was his contribution towards helping to make things a bit comfortable for the women.

Mr. Ali spoke of his unswerving resolve to continue to show generosity to the poor, the suffering and the vulnerable in society.

He invited the well-to-do to lend support to those in real need including orphans.

Health professionals from the Akwatia Saint Dominic Hospital were on hand at the ceremony to provide free breast cancer screening and to take the blood pressure of the widows.
