Hope for Widows

A Villager's Hand is a 501c3 nonprofit that began five years ago to help impoverished women in developing countries through fair trade.  Women are aided in earning a sustainable income through crafts.  But often, these women are in need of immediate assistance before they can begin to earn and heal.  We have met women who have been reduced to skin and bones, surviving on a small paste of flour for their one meal.  Another widow we encountered had not eaten in nearly a week, just to make sure her three children had food.  They often live in the worst imaginable conditions, like a metal shack in a garbage dump approximately 5x5.  We need help to get these widows healthy and safe as they work towards their sustainable future.  A donation of $15 could be used to buy them a solar lamp because they have no electricity.  $25 could buy a water filration system because they have no access to clean water. $35 provides food for a month.  $50 will buy a goat for milk for the children.  $150 will buy a water tank to store plenty of water.  And we need $1500 to purchase a safe home with toilet facilities.  Whether you can donate $5 or $1500, every little bit will help us to provide emergency care for the widows and give them hope.  We hope to raise our goal by March 1, 2017.  These women think that no one cares.  Let's show them we do!  Thank you.
