Ladies of St. Mulumba (LSM), have been enjoined to emulate the She Needs A Roof Project (SNARP) of Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha as part of their humanitarian services.

Commissioner for Industry and Non-Formal Sector, Barr. Ugochi Nnanna-Okoro stated this when she received a delegation of Owerri Metropolitan Officers of Ladies of St. Mulumba, comprising Imo, Abia, parts of Anambra, Rivers and Ebonyi States, challenged Ladies to always spare a thought for needy neighbours, especially those exposed to weather elements due to poor or no housing, noting that SNARP is a life-changing project which has put smiles on the faces of indigent widows.

Barr. Nnanna-Okoro condemned what she described as obnoxious traditional practices in Igboland especially those against widows as well as disinheritance of barren women and female children from family property and called on the Ladies to put such issues on the front burner.

On the plight of disadvantaged members of LSM, the Commissioner for Industry and Non-Formal Sector, who is also a Lady of St. Mulumba called for internal philanthropy and charity within the Order and advised the leadership to feel the pains of such members by waiving their dues and levies.

Speaking on the projects lined up by the Owerri Metropolitan Council, Barr. Ugochi Nnanna-Okoro pledged her support and readiness to partner towards organizing a fund-raising programme and called for strategic planning to ensure success.

Earlier, the President, Owerri Metropolitan Council of Ladies of St. Mulumba, Lady Chinedu Brown, briefed Barr. Ugochi Nnanna-Okoro on their plans to build a hostel in the state capital to provide accommodation for stranded girls, especially victims of child trafficking.

Lady Brown further told the Commissioner of their plans to establish a micro-credit scheme to assist indigent widows to obtain loans for business.

Expressing concern over the moral implications of co-habitation of male and female undergraduates in same hostels, Lady Brown disclosed that the Metropolitan Council, which has over 3000 members, has concluded arrangements to mount seminars at various higher institutions to educate female students on moral standards and called on Barr. Ugochi Nnanna-Okoro whom she described as a virtuous and worthy sister to assist towards the success of the programme.
