WWR welcomes two new women

November 29, 2012
Two new ladies were referred to us today.  This is the first: her name is Maiya and her husband simply disappeared over a decade ago.  She bought up her four children on her own, two of whom are now married.  The other two are teenagers and live with her – they survive in one very basic room but her sacrifice has allowed her to keep her children in school.  She is a very worthy recipient of our support and we really hope to be able to help her.

And this is Hasta, the other lady who joined WWR this week.  She is just 34 years old and her husband died five months ago from a heartattack.  She has three children who depend on her, all of them teenagers and she suffers from many health problems herself.  Please do pray for her and her family.

Sad news from Nepal

July 8, 2009

Sadly Hari, one of the people we support in Nepal, has died today after a short stay in hospital.  Our prayers are for his wife Gyanu whom he leaves behind.

Hari and Gyanu were the only ‘old couple’ we supported – they had no children of their own and their nephew had cheated them of their life savings.

They are pictured together here.

Women Without Roofs will of course continue to provide support to his wife.
