Widows and Family Support Update (May 2014)

    Ummah Welfare Trust has created a fund which is used to provide regular payments to widows in poor conflict-ridden countries.Alhamdulillah the charity is currently sponsoring 485 widows and families. Alhamdulillah this year.

    Not all these families are necessarily widowed families but they do lack a breadwinner. The father is incapacitated, or in some cases, missing. Ummah Welfare Trust asks Allah to ease the situation for them. Ameen.

    As always, the charity is urging for more donations so more widowed families can be helped.
