Kenya has one of the highest rates of AIDS in the world. In 2016 alone, the country had more than 36,000 AIDS-related deaths. This epidemic has left thousands of women widowed.

In a land where women customarily aren’t allowed to own property, widows not only grieve the loss of their husbands but also the loss of most of their possessions. A widow is often blamed for her husband’s death and is disinherited by in-laws who claim that she has no right to her matrimonial home.

For widows facing this stigma and the accompanying hunger, Support-A-Widow food parcels are a big relief and reminder of God’s care.
