Dear the PulseWire Community Members,
How wonderful are you to bring such a site to let people meet from different cultures with different ideas from different destinations all over the world. Thank you all for the work of this site. I am so much thrilled to be here at the moment and with true feelings that its a right place for me to talk about my work of Widow and Child in Need. Thank you again.
I indeed welcome everyone who would wish to have a contact with me about Widow and Child in Need project and whatever the case maybe that we can share ideas on different issues but at least which can be about widows and children.
We basically talk about widows because I recall the moment when my dad died. I was 1 month born and believe this was a terrible moment for my mother bringing up five children that was including I the little one and the fact was my mother was a peasant. So however, my mother was a Widow and I was a Child in Need so coming up with name of the project as (Widow and Child in Need).
I am Lornah (Loran) female 32 years currently working with Widow and Child in Need (WCN-Mbale) Uganda, East Africa. Widow & Child in Need was established to improve the quality of life and advance the rights of widows and their children; to bring about change for good on behalf of widows and families, and encourage them to participate in processes which will enhance their equality, self-reliance and long term sustainable development. Wherever possible, to provide practical support which allows widows to continue to live normally within their own families and communities.
The Charity for Widows' aims and objectives are to assist widows, who suffer through being handicapped, poor, exploited and abused with particular emphasis on those living in Mbale’s deprived rural areas. This is achieved through providing, promoting and advancing widows' and their children's rights to basic necessities as offering small loans, house hold support, shelter, small income generating activities.
We were was so happy to come across this site that I can express my self to other people as have spent most of the time on the internet looking for such kind of sites. Though haven’t known how most of the things go on but I think will learn as I continue using the site.
HOWEVER, THERE MIGHT BE SOMEONE INTERESTED IN LEARNING SPECIFICALLY WANT WCN DOES;
