Widows and Abandoned Children

In Asian culture, many widows are seen as a curse and may even be shunned from society. Depending on the circumstances, they’re often ignored by even their close relatives.

Abandoned children also face extremely difficult conditions. On their own, they search for food in waste dumps and make their homes with trash and rubble.

COVID-19 has put widows and abandoned children at even greater risk as they are among the most vulnerable in society. In addition to the risk of contracting this virus, many of them struggle to even put food in their stomachs, and, for widows, feed their children.

When asked why he gave towards widows and abandoned children, Pete, from Washington answered:

“I read the book Revolution in World Missions and will never be the same. It opened my eyes at my own selfishness. That's the first reason. The second is because God’s Word says do not forget the widows and orphans.”
