Upon becoming a widow in some developing nations, a woman is often blamed for her husband's death and enters a life of shame. Burdened with the responsibility to care for her children alone, she is often forced into begging or even prostitution.
By supporting widows, you'll be a part in giving them means of renewable income, like a sewing machine or farm animals. You'll also help with daily essentials, like blankets and water filters.
Most of all, this support will be given through the local church, giving them a chance to learn about the unending love of Jesus Christ.
