Posted May 1, 2016 from India

This is a CALL FOR ACTION for all the women leaders around the globe.

Are you a woman whose presence inspires others, one who can motivate masses in dark hours, a woman of courage to speak about the shortcomings of gender based discrimination or a girl with a great vision?

Are you one of them , who kindles the flame of knowledge in others , or the one who leads the path by example , or a true survivor and warrior in adverse conditions?

Are you a lady who leads in fields, battlefronts, summits, peace talks and conventions. or a woman using her pastels and brush, or strings and keys or pen to invoke thoughts for actions?

Are you a mother who rears her children to be responsible citizens and humans or a teacher who guides youngsters during the important phase of growth and development?

It was my first day at my new office having been posted from the office of the wife of the Governor,  as the Chief Admin. Officer and Secretary to head a department in the office of the Head of Service known as Policy, Design and Innovation.  The posting was at first not very well accepted by me because i will loose out in the glamour that goes with being a secretary and chief admin officer to Her Excellency, it comes with a whole lot of respect.  I accepted it anyway knowing that God has a reason for such a movement.  After being shown my office, i started the following day to change the look of the office that by third day of my posting to that department, people from other departments were coming to see the physical changes that i made.

It was during the clean up exercise that i noticed how frail Ms Comfort (not real name) was and how she panted for air after every movement.  When the clean up exercise was over, I called her to know what she was suffering from that made her look so skinny.  She told me she had a hole in the heart.  She was diagnosed with this in 2008 and since she was not married and being the eldest of three children of their late parents, it has not been easy for her to manage her health condition with her very meager salary.  

Ruldin-Society for Neglected Women of Nigeria, an NGO I founded in 2009, decided to complete the outstanding tests she could not complete for lack of money.  A report of her situation was given to her to enable us try to raise fund for her to undergo an operation to repair the hole in her heart and give her life.  A bill of N1,500,000.00 was given to her for the surgery, and the goodnews is that on the 12th of June, 2016 Comfort will be among the many patients who will undergo an open heart surgery.  We are trying to raise fund for her operation and we call on all to please pray that we raise money and that well meaning individuals and corporate organisations will heed the call to save her life.

We have to give her opportunity to live because being a woman she has a lot to contribute to this life.  We at Ruldin-Society for Neglected Women of Nigeria needs your prayers at this time.

Today i now know the reason for that posting.  God wanted to move me from my comfort zone to go and give life to Ms. Comfort.

Your story is a very interesting one yet a very powerful one. I concur with you that God moved you in the new office for a reason. We will definitely pray for Ms. Comfort and see how to support her. I know and trust that all will be well with her.

This is a very touching story, it moved me to tears and yes most time we question God about our position and location but we do not understand that he has placed us there for a reason.

Thank you Chimdirimebere and everyone else who share their views on the touching story told by Chimdirimebere. Indeed we never know what and why life leaves us in some situation. There is always a purpose to what happens in life and we as women and as leaders can bring out the best of what situation lets us be in.

Inspiring other women, encouraging them to stand on their own in life and have a goal to achieve are few things besides being caring and compassionate ,these leaders would be.

THanks to all of you for lending support. If you wish to register your own leadership statement, kindly do it here: http://goo.gl/forms/dOOufFbP8u79nf0G2

Leadership is all about servanthood. Anybody willing to Lead should be willing to serve others with humility.We should emulate Jesus and lead the way He did. He had a lot of compassion for those in problems, went ahead to assist and prayed for them.

Dear Chimdirimebere,

This is a very powerful story. Thanks a lot for all the effort you are making to help Ms Comfort and other women in your community. That's what leadership means- leading others out of fear and help them lead their own destiny. When she heals, she'll will do what she always wanted to in life. We' ll surely keep her in our prayers.

Regards.

Rosemary
