Sellers on Ebay can now choose to support Women Without Roofs through their sales. Ebay gives the option for 10 to 100% of an item’s final sale price to be donated to charity and now WWR is among those charities that can benefit.
This is great news as all money raised by WWR goes to Nepal where even the smallest amounts go a long way; for instance just £10 can pay a woman’s rent for a month giving her a home.
We are growing all the time and take on the support of new women frequently. This is the moving story of the latest woman we have taken on:
She has three children aged 15,13 and 10. They are originally from Rolpa. They came to Kathmandu 7 years ago. Her husband went to Malaysia for work and after a few months he was sick and was supposed to return to Nepal. But he did not come back and was not in Malaysia. She asked her husband’s friend where he was and they told her that he had already come back to Nepal. But he has not arrived. So she has lost her husband, since then she has done household work to survive. She has to work at 4 houses. At one house, they lost their 10 tola (tola is a Nepali measurment) gold worth Rs 250,000 (approx £2000). It was blamed on her. They beat her and took her to the police station. She said she did not take the gold. The policeman also did not get any proof. Then the other 3 houses also did not give her work, so nowadays she does not have work. She has been unable to pay her rent too. She is a Christian.
Please help us to support women in these dreadful situations either by making a one-off donation or, even better, by sponsoring one of them for £10 per month. Please see the ‘Contact Us’ page for how to do this. Thank you.
