Blessing Ajalo talks about her experience with WiCare…
“When I got to know WiCare I was a few weeks pregnant, battered and confused, wondering what I was going to do with the baby in my womb. WiCare gave me shelter; women I had never met supported me until I had my baby. WiCare provided me with material and financial support; It’s a family to have”. Blessing Ajalo.
