as always, but more tensed this time, I have just been reminded the dire need for more women if not all to be economically empowered! The precautionary measures in cubbing Covid 19, which entails every one staying at home and isolated has indeed exposed to an extend, the number of women who are dependent on friends, relatives etc for survival! The act of staying at home , no doubt should be accepted with a level of gladness as it appears a solution to the spread of the deadly virus. But the big question is ; is it welcomed by the indigent amongst us? Is it acceptable to those whose survival lies on their daily income or hustle.... hell NO!
Ironically, what is meant to bring solution to us is sending many to their early graves and leaving many in panic! The panic, those who are unable to stock up their houses with food stuffs is more than the panic of the virus instead! What are we talking about here? HUNGER IS KILLING MORE THAN THE VIRUS!
The messages I got from hundreds of women(ie the ones who can access me) about their fear of dying of the virus of hunger is appalling. One more time, I have felt ‘unfulfilled ‘ not been able to assist as much as I can . I weep more than they do without them knowing. I feel pained deep down inside of me for many who are beaten by the virus of lack and hunger this period. Only if every woman is economically empowered, the case would have been different.
