Some of the widowed mothers and grandmothers who take care of the orphaned children including children with disabilities need direct support for basic needs such as food and clothing for their children.
Pictured on the right is a widow with her twin grandchildren. She is unable to meet the basic needs for her family including these children’s education.
Required support to supplement food costs
A monthly stipend to supplement food cost can help relieve the care takers of orphans from the burden of food budget.
€30 per month can provide basic food supply for a rural family of a widowed mother / grandmother of a maximum of four children.
