Widows are the true heroes of orphan care all across Africa. Even though they themselves are often in desperate need, they seem unable to resist taking in a needy orphan.
PHC is targeting these valiant women with real help in two forms:
1 – Garden plots – PHC has purchased 50 acres of land for these widows so they can cash in on their one marketable skill: farming. View this fun 1-minute video showing the various enterprises our ladies have undertaken.
Enjoy this brief video about PHC Widow farmers appropriately called Songs of Joy.
Also, view this video, a section of which provides insight into these ladies’ hard work and vital spirit.
2 – Anti-retroviral (ARV) drugs for HIV+ widows. It costs about $300 to get these women on the drugs and then about $10 per month for the rest of their lives for ARVs.
