This empowerment programme is our little way to cushion their pain and bring succor to the home’, Hasbini stated

“A good sign from companies who are socially responsible is their contribution towards uplifting the dignity of human. I am particularly proud of Apple and Pears for deeming it fit to empower widows and in the long run women who are the nation builders’, she added.

‘With this gesture of yours, you have provided succor to a great number of dependents of these women, and it is only in the future that you will realise that this little mustard seed you have planted, will be a great Oak”.
