Widow and Orphan Care
Doing What’s Needed
Unfortunately, there are many young widows with very young children in villages. Some of the common causes of men are: snake bites in farming fields, locally made contaminated alcohol, suicides and other health issues. We try to support them through giving something that provides recurring income like: a couple of goats for $100, a sewing machine for $200 and a water buffalo for $500. This would help them to stay home and take care of their children instead of having to go on a daily labor, which is seasonal and unpredictable.
For older widows, who cannot work, we give a monthly support of $25.
