When we saw the joy on the faces of widowed persons as they received our gifts, we were left to ponder how many times we could come back and do this while reminding ourselves that being without a spouse does not mean being alone. It was a remarkable day, for us the purpose of reminding them that we still have them at heart was achieved. Even more, we were also able to remind them celebrations are for all.
This would not have been the same story without our able members and volunteers. Starlight Foundation is what you see because people have chosen to align with the vision and objectives of the Foundation.
For our members and volunteers, our reward is the smile and joy of others when we can reach out to them. For us, nothing will stop us from doing what makes us exist thus, validating the saying that we lift ourselves when others are lifted.
We also bring all the blessings from widowed persons in Ekon community to all of you who have been our backbone and support all this while. When people see what Starlight Foundation has done and is still doing, we are left to ponder on how we would have survived if not for your support. It’s only the front liners we see every time, but we are also grateful to those behind the scenes working on the grassroots level ensuring that we are successful when we move out.
We are not stopping just yet as your pledge of support has become what drives us. It’s on this note that we ask for you to continually be behind us as we dive into higher heights, your names shall continually be part of our success story.
We are also entirely grateful to the people of Ekon community in Cape Coast especially their Assemblymen for receiving us and granting us the chance to make this happen. It was indeed a day that would go down memory as one of the extraordinary days in which we were able to meet with widowed persons and share in their joy of the realization that they are not alone. And as the saying goes that “walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light”, we will never leave our widowed persons to the thought of loneliness. This walk we’ve begun with them is everlasting.
