On Saturday, November 12, 2022, a Lagos-based not-for-profit organisation, CBA Foundation, will hold its yearly five-kilometre walk charity sensitisation called Walk4Hope.

A statement from the organisers disclosed that registration for the walk is open to all and will start at 7.00 am, with the walk kicking off at 7.15 am at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos.

This year’s programme, the organisers further said, is billed to have over 200 persons from various walks of life.

The founder of CBA Foundation, Mrs Chinwe Bode-Akinwande, in the statement, explained that the organisation was “created with the sole purpose of working with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, dehumanisation, 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 said, 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.

Since January 2016, Walk4Hope has been the highlight of a series of activities embarked on by the CBA Foundation to sensitise the public on the plight and challenges faced by underprivileged widows and their vulnerable children.

CBA Foundation has since been a bedrock of support to thousands of widows and their children across the country as donations received from individuals and organisations have been used to sponsor the education of children, promote the enrolment of widows in skill acquisition endeavours, provision of accommodation for victims of extended family abuse and rejection – following the loss of the husband of the bereaved widow, amongst others.

Achieving its impacts on society is driven by five core areas, including Women empowerment/capacity building, health, nutrition, quality basic education and self-employment scheme.
