Communal Care Centre recorded yet another feat on ending harmful cultural practices exacerbating violence against women and girls in Oguta community. In a town hall meeting held on Saturday 19th November 2022, the paramount ruler of Oguta, Eze Nnani Nzeribe Eze-Eyiche, the Eze Igwe 1 of Oguta, reacting to the document signed by the oldest woman (Ogene nwanyi) in Oguta, supported by a communique from an interractive meeting with women groups, conceded to making widowhood practice favourable and convenient for women. He practically accepted everything in the document which states that the woman has the prerogative to decide what she wants. He then requested CCC and National Human Rights Commission to support the community in developing a legal document on issues around GBV. He further requested CCC to help arrange a sensitization program for the larger community where the information will be disseminated and copies of the document distributed as a guiding policy document for the community.
