Story

FEB. 8, 2021 UPDATE: We were able to help 30 widows on January 30 with a little money left over! We have 2 donors willing to match up to $300 in donations to make your $1 = $2 so we can continue to help these widows on a regular basis (quarterly or monthly, depending on donor response).  Please consider partnering with us to help these ladies meet their needs through a monetary donation and/or sharing this campaign with others.

We have a request to help 30 widows who live in the Roi area and are in need of food and medicine. They live day to day in bad situations and suffer because they have no way to help themselves. We would like to buy them rice, beans, oil, spaghetti, sugar, soap, and medicines. Remina Jean, who is a nurse, will oversee the distribution of the goods to each home.

Psalm 68:5 Tells us that God is concerned with the widows, the fatherless,  and the stranger. Many times throughout the Bible, the Lord tells His people to care for the vulnerable. As children of God we want to make sure we are copying His example and conforming to His will. In this world of trials and tribulations it is easy to want to turn internally and try to close out the distresses of the world, but we need to remember that when we are other focused it helps to lift our hearts off our own problems and brings us so many blessings knowing that we have made a change for the better in another persons life. If you are able to help financially in giving so that we can purchase some of the things necessary to provide these women nutrition and medical care we thank you so much! But if you are unable to help with a financial gift you can still help. Would you please consider lifting these ladies up in prayer and sharing their need on your social media as well as with your family and friends? You can either share this link or you can send a simple text asking people to text SSHWidows to (202) 858-1233 for more information. Thank you so much for your support!
