During the genocide numerous women became widows having lost their husbands who had been cruelly murdered. The widows also went through traumatic experiences and are still suffering from the results.
They were forced by their neighbours to give up their children to the murderers. Some of them had to witness their children being killed. Many of the women have not been able to overcome those experiences. Additionally many lost the basis of their livelihood and have to live in grinding poverty. Drawing fresh drinking water is very often not possible.
Nonetheless, they try to care for their children and grandchildren supporting one another. Our partners help the women with counselling, praying with them and giving practical help.
At the moment it costs 31 Euro p. month to support a family. Please get in contact with us, if you have interest in getting a sponsor!
