Sequel to the webinar hosted by the foundation with its beneficiaries, it was realized that the Covid-19 pandemic had negatively affected the businesses of our beneficiaries and most of them were in dire need of financial assistance.
On the 8th of August 2020, MGE Foundation presented palliatives in form of cash to all the past beneficiaries of the foundation. Some of them were also gifted mobiles phones to assist with promoting their business digitally.
The high point of the day was presenting sewing machines and accessories start-up packs to our three fashion and design beneficiaries who graduated in February this year.
The event was attended by Prof Iyeopu Siminialayi, Mrs Eunice Somiari and Mrs Sarah Dikibo key stakeholders of our partners Wakirike Development Coalition as well as the board members of the foundation who joined virtually. It was a pleasure having with us the leader of the Ogu/Bolo Legislative Assembly, Rt Hon Joachim Yemiari.
