Help a widow and her children
War, crime, disease, and extreme poverty all claim the spouses of women, no matter if they're young or elderly. The responsibility of supporting their family has been left to these women. Many widows come from societies where women are not educated, and males are the only ones who provide for their families. As a result, when a woman becomes a widow, she has no skills to rely on to support herself as well as her family.
Due to the lack of opportunities for a better life, widows and orphans experience increased poverty. Their homes are fashioned out of mud, steel sheets as well as other salvaged materials. Families of 8 or 9 are jammed into one small room that serves as their home, their kitchen, and bathroom with makeshift beds all in one area, thus increasing the risk of disease and ultimately, death.
