AWLO UPDATE: Today will forever remain a memorable and epic day in the United Kingdom and Africa as the AKWA IBOM STATE AWLO chapter remarkably made history as the only gender based organization in Africa to emulate the legacies of the Scottish Missionary – Mary Mitchel Slessor who died 102 years ago on 13th January 1915.
It was a Memorial Charity visit at exactly 3:15pm in the Missionary Orphanage home at Anua Nwaniba. This event created memories of Mary Mitchel Slessor’s legacies and audacity of hope for the unborn twins and women in the Akwa-Cross region of Nigeria during her missionary advent. The Executives of AWLO AKWA IBOM STATE Chapter led by Barr. Helen Umana donated food items and educational materials to the orphans who were filled with a grateful heart and prayerful spirit. The orphans were mentored and inspired to see themselves as leaders of corporate organizations and political offices in transforming Africa into a globally competitive continent irrespective of their disadvantage background. Present at this epoch making humanitarian event was Hon. Elisha Attai, Founder of AFRICAN WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP ORGANIZATION (AWLO), Mrs. Eme Atakpo, Founder of FRIENDS OF THE NEEDY ORGANIZATION (FONO), Mrs. Pat Eno, Board Director of Royalty Hotel, Volunteers and Press.
