This was during the annual come together of the association of Manyu women (MOHWA-DMV) INC, over the weekend in the U.S.
Some 500 people joined the Association of Manyu Women (MOHWA-DMV) residing in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia in the United States of America to launch a project “Uplifting the Manyu Girl Child.” This was during its annual come together on May 13, 2023 in the USA.

A task she admits is not without obstacles. However, she urged everybody to contribute to the project as if they were doing it for their own child.”
