In Uganda an elderly widow is just like an orphan, helpless.
Alone and left to fend for themselves the situation of these women is dire, they have no security, no family to care for them in their old age and have to find or grow their own food, imagine doing that if you are 80 arthritic, possibly sight or hearing impaired.
Elderly widows are seen as a burden on an already poverty stricken community and are therefore the last to receive assistance.
WHAT WE DO
We provide care and support for destitute elderly widows.
ODMI, in partnership with Widows Intercessors Ministries are changing this situation providing care and support for widows in their communities. W.I.M. provincial coordinators ensure that the ladies are looked after with food, clothing, shelter and medical care.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Do something wonderful, sponsor a widow.
By sponsoring one of these precious ladies you will be providing them with a home, a safe and secure environment, healthy food, clothing and medical care.
But so much more than that, you will give them the treasured gift of hope and dignity, warmth and love, friendship and the knowledge that someone cares.
£15 or US$30 a month is all it takes. The full amount goes to the lady you are sponsoring, including applicable gift aided amounts.
GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
When you sponsor one of these ladies we will send you her profile and photo. She will write to you once or twice a year to let you know how she is. We would encourage you to write to her, pray for her. All correspondence to and from Uganda is directed through the ODMI office. We will also send you a newsletter once a year to update you on all news and projects.
