In her speech, Mrs. Kibochi stated that MWAK welcomes impactful interactions with NOWA. “MWAK was inaugurated in 2020, and though we are at the early stages, we are impressed with the achievements of NOWA especially to the welfare of military families. This being a service to humanity, we believe it is also a service to God,” she said.

Naval Officers Wives Association (NOWA) was established in 1957. Presently, NOWA’s scope is not only to cater to the well-being of women and children in the barracks but also to immediate communities around the barracks. “NOWA is involved in numerous humanitarian activities and empowerment programs. The purpose of this meeting is to expose the members of NOWA to the workings of different organizations,” mentioned Mrs. Nana Gambo.

The event was attended by delegations from both Kenya and Nigeria. The ceremony ended with the presentation of mementos to the guests.
