In her address, the President of CWO, Lizzy Nweke who described the forum as opportunity for Catholic women to gather together and raise money for the upkeep of their church as well as support the building of their new parish, noted that the women used the forum to visit the less privileged, parishioners as well as sick ones among them.

She maintained that the women celebrate charity week once a year where they lend money to petty business men and women without interest, distribute food items, provisions and clothings to the needy in their midst.

According to Mrs Nweke, seminars are being held annually to equip the women on the best ways to take care of their families which has transformed and uplifted many of them as well as produce good number of converts.
