Widows and Abandoned Children
In many areas we serve, widows are an invisible part of society. They are commonly ignored, rejected and believed to be the cause of their husbands’ deaths, even cursed in some regions. Their own upbringing often leads them to believe those same things about themselves. Even women who have been abandoned by their husbands face the same sudden crisis as that of widows.
Also, millions of children must fend for themselves either as orphans, runaways or sons and daughters abandoned by their parents. Alone and unprotected, widows and abandoned children face immense practical and emotional hardships. But the Body of Christ can offer support and hope. When you give toward Widows and Abandoned Children, you can help provide things like food, shelter, income-generating gifts, dignity and God’s compassion to women and children in need.
