A Nigerian widow, Augusta Anosike, resident in Imo state must be one of the happiest women in the country currently after she was gifted a house to live in.

The woman and other members of her family had recently raised an alarm asking for help after the old mud house they used to know as home began to crumble.

She raised the alarm on December 25, 2019, a day when the world was celebrating the year's Christmas.

She noted that it was not easy getting through with the project as she attributed its successful completion to God's capacity to make things happen.

"For your support, words of encouragement and sharing out the story for this act of charity towards this widow life, may heaven, God of the widows, orphanage children, the God of impossibility also do the same for you all," she prayed as she quoted James 1 versus 27 to back up her declaration.

It was earlier reported how a day after donating N1 billion for the fight against coronavirus in Nigeria, billionaire businesswoman Folorunsho Alakija further donated N25,000 to each of her foundation's registered widows and orphans in the six geopolitical zones in the country.

The money was donated to cushion the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on the beneficiaries.
