Widows are present in all societies of the world. In our culture where our women always stay at home and take care of the children and home, it is very difficult for them to face this situation. When the head of the family who is the sole support of the family is deceased, there are many problems for the family, and especially for the widow. It becomes very difficult for her to run the household and make enough to pay the bills. The situation becomes even worse when a Christian becomes a widow. She faces discrimination in all areas of life. Society does not accept her. When she goes out to look for work she has no education or job skills. She may have to work as a maid in someone’s home to earn her living and keep her household running.
PGM felt that we should do something to help these poor and needy widows. We decided to give them food packages so they don’t have to worry about having enough food to feed their family. We request an application from the widows and decide if they need our help. This kind of help is very rarely being done in Pakistan. We give the widows a food package that holds enough food to feed six people for a full one month. Items in the package include flour, sugar, rice and many other items which are needed every day.
We also give them The Word of God and tell them at the time of distribution that they are receiving help from the Lord Jesus Christ and only HE is the provider and helper of the world.
We pray that we can help more and more widows who need our help with a monthly food package. You can also join us in the food packages for widows by praying for us, by adopting a widow for a month or for a full year. You can contact us to get information to help these widows.
