Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Widows & Abandoned Women Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
For 20 years, Leelamani suffered in an extremely abusive situation with her alcoholic husband. He used to beat her physically, lock her outside of the house overnight, and deny her food for days. On many nights, Leelamani cried herself to sleep. She became depressed and hopeless.
Talking about using the toilet may not be a common topic for most people. But for 71-year-old Namuga, it was a matter of great significance. When she received a donation from Heaven’s Family’s Widows & Abandoned Women Ministry to build a new pit latrine, it not only saved her from potential arrest by local health officials, but it also rescued her from the cultural stigma associated with her old, dilapidated bathroom.
Several months ago, we received an urgent cry for help from our trusted partner in Mubende District, Uganda requesting food assistance for many suffering widows, abandoned mothers, and teen moms in his community. He reported that the babies and children had no food and were going to sleep hungry.
