Being a widow is very difficult, especially when you have 4 children to take care of - these were the words of the Serbeze that remain in my head the day I visited her.
Serbeze is an elderly woman from Fushë Kosova who has been widowed for 23 years. She is facing more difficulties in her life. In addition to the economic conditions that are very difficult, where she often lacks basic items for life, she is also facing her illness where it is very difficult to provide therapy since the medicaments she uses are very expensive.
When I asked her if she receives social assistance, she said "No, I don't receive any assistance from the state, I am now 60 years old and I really hope to be alive for more than 5 years and wait for the old age pension, but who knows if I can survive for these years from this disease that is making my life more and more difficult every day".
She benefits from the Widow Fund Fushë Kosova project, and she is very grateful that the donors help her and for us as TIP who do not forget her and take care of her condition, we help her with food and medicaments when we have the opportunity.
Thank you to all the donors who help widows, who overcome difficulties in their lives and lend a helping hand when they feel lonely and hopeless.
