Mrs. Kaneng Yakubu is one of the widows who has benefited from V.C.M empowerment fund. She became a widow in 2002 when her husband lost his life to crisis. Yakubu was visiting a village Nyarwei, which was attacked by the Muslim Fundamentalists. The hoodlums met him on his way returning, they attacked and killed him immediately, because he refused to change religion on the spot. The man left seven children behind for the wife to cater for them. Mrs. Kaneng had no help from anybody. She began to do subsistence farming to maintain the children. A widow introduced her to the VCM. Her fortune began to change from uncertainty to joy. Voice of the Christian Martyrs took two of her children, Tis, a boy and Nvon, a girl to train free at Abeokuta.

VCM also gave her a grinding machine to use in generating some fund. Last year, she was given the sum of (N292.000.000) two hundred and ninety-two Naira to use in trading. She now has a shop where she sells garri and other food items. Three children are now in Secondary School, while two that stay with her are in Primary Schools. She also feed from the profit from the sells.

She invests part of the money with farmers who supply her with foodstuff during harvest at a lower price. Mrs. Kaneng is a member of the Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN). She is a strong member of Women Fellowship. "I have forgiven those who killed my husband," she said. "Meanwhile, I am not thinking about marrying another man. I am grateful to God for using people to alleviate my suffering. May God continue to bless them to help other people who suffer". She wishes that God would open doors for other women to find help as she had found. "The widows should depend entirely on God. God does not forsake widows. He has not abandoned me. God will help them too". She concluded.
