Mercy Aigbe And prolific actor Desmond Elliot made Ambassadors For Felix King ‘Abolishment Of Widows
Famous actress and fashion icon, Mercy Aigbe was today unveiled alongside prolific actor and politician Desmond Elliot as the new Ambassadors to Felix King Foundation Liberty Project for the ‘Abolishment of Widows Maltreatment’ in Africa.
'Today , history beckons as I add my voice to the movement that will hopefully inspire the abolishment of widows' maltreatment in our communities. It's heart breaking to realise that with all the societal advancements, a reasonable segment of our society which constitutes over 8 million disadvantaged widows and 24 million children below age 17 are still subject to maltreatment that include; domestic violence, sexual assault, conversion of properties, forced evictions, neglects, denial of human rights and the list goes on. 'I stand with widows today, will you join me? let's protect the rights of widows and women. I believe no woman deserves to be maltreated regardless of the circumstances life throws at her. 1million pledges is needed to present the "abolish widows maltreatment in Edo state bill" to the Edo state House of Assembly which i believe will eventually inspire communities across Africa to seek for this all important change.
I just pledged my voice as a "Widows'Liberty Ambassador" for the Felix King Foundation Liberty Project for the abolishment of widows' maltreatment in Africa, WILL YOU? Please join me to raise the 1 million pledges. it takes less than a minute to sign on but you'll be changing the life of a widow and more widows to come tomorrow when this bill is passed by the grace of God. I stand with #abolishwidowsmaltreatment.
Please pledge your voice onwww.felixkingfoundation.com/add-your-voice ; Let's do this together!'

My opinion: What the widows really need is Income and Housing Benefit Support from the government, as most of them are left with nothing, while they mourn their loved ones and at the same time thinking of how to survive with no help.
When would Nigerian A-list celebrities campaign for Income and Housing Benefit Support Bill for millions of jobless and helpless people in the country.
