Today, on International Widows Day, Action on Child, Early and Forced Marriage (ACE&FM) is pleased to share its report, “Practical Guidance on Supporting Child Widows,” based on information collected from 22 countries on child widows needs and how to support them. As the first study of its kind, we hope it will have a significant impact at international, national and local levels in galvanising support for child widows. We thank the members of World Pulse who contributed to the study and the management team.
