He traveled nearly 10 hours from Ara with his family and friends for the occasion.

In an interview with First News, Yussif Salford explained his motivation: “I decided to extend the gift of love I’ve enjoyed for 50 years to a community that I’m a complete stranger to. No sense of entitlement, no judgement, no strings attached. Just love.” After receiving a list of widows and orphans that exceeded his budget, he sought support from friends and family to impact the lives of those in Apesokubi.

One elderly widow, known as Abrewa Borga, expressed gratitude for the event’s impact, especially on young widows: “It is only God that can cause people to do what you people have done today. It’s an absolute privilege for me to see and feel so much love and happiness in one place. Thank you for sharing this moment with us.”
