CBA Foundation, a Lagos-based Not for Profit organization, has concluded plans to organize a five-kilometer-long walk tagged Walk4Hope in the Lekki area of Lagos on Saturday, November 12, 2016. The charity walk which is the highlight of a series of activities embarked upon by the organization since January 2016 is aimed at raising funds for the protection and support of underprivileged widows and their vulnerable children. Proceeds from this event will go directly to support programs that directly benefit the underprivileged widows and their children.

The Foundation has also identified the five core areas that will benefit from the proceeds of the event. These include areas on Women empowerment/capacity building, health, nutrition, quality basic education and self-employment scheme. Over 100 persons from various walks of life are expected to participate in this walk.

According to the President of the Foundation, Chinwe Bode-Akinwande, the Foundation believes that nurturing and caring for the underprivileged are the cornerstones of human progress. “CBA Foundation was created with the sole purpose of working with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, dehumanization, injustice, disease and discrimination placed on a widow and her child’s path”. She further stressed that the foundation launched the #CareIsAction campaign in recognition of the fact that care without action is not care at all.

“Every step counts! Every step you take brings us closer to offering hope to underprivileged widows and their children, she says, adding that CBA Foundation is dedicated to promoting the protection of widows primarily and their vulnerable children in Nigeria, to promote immediate and lasting hope, confidence and courage in their lives.

Registration for the walk is open to all and will start at 7.00am while the walk kicks off at 7.30am at the Maruwa Bustop (second roundabout, Lekki, Lagos)
