Widows receiving fertilizer
The strengthening families program is doing very well. The widows received their fertilizer in April although the rains delayed. Our rain season is in April, but this year the rains started later in April. The planting was done but it was different from other years. Every person planted at her own chosen timing because the rains were not consistent. Therefore the maturity of the crops is different but they have done very well. The harvest will not be at the same time as it has always been.
They received the fertilizer according to the number of acreages and most of the women have done a good job. They cultivated their crops very well and they top dressed with CAN. We perceive a good harvest despite the challenges.
This program has been successful because all the fatherless children in different families can have food on their tables. We are not helping one individual child but we are helping the entire family. The widows are very happy and their testimonies are very encouraging. Their children do not work on farms for food, they go to school every day.
This would not have been so without your support. Your commitment, prayers, and support have changed the lives of widows and their children. These are women who have no jobs, they have no education and their breadwinners have gone. Some of them have been denied access to so many things since their husbands who would have defended them are no more. You have given them hope, they have realized that someone from far, can remember a widow and her children.
It is my prayer that you will continue to share this cause with friends and families. We will appreciate if we will have more monthly supporters, $10 put together makes a big difference. Nothing is small to accomplish this mission. Together we can change the world.
Thank you and God bless you all.
