LFT Winter ❄️ activities in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen & the UK
With the cool winter months setting in the northern hemisphere let us spare a thought for those struggling close to home and further shores emerging from conflict and war. The mothernomics graduates in Karbala will be sewing warm clothing for the 500 widowed mothers in the City of Imam Hussain as they care for their orphaned boys and girls. How better to care for a community than to show love to the mothers who tirelessly look after their orphaned sons and daughters. Additionally, 1,500 orphaned and poor children in the City of Najaf will be provided with winter blankets to keep them safe and warm as they continue with their education. A new mothernomics training suite is established in Dashte Barchi in Kabul to teach mothers in Kabul how to sew much-needed winter blankets and warm clothing. In Yemen, the widowed mothers who are trainees of the mothernomics program are progressing well and on their way to independence for themselves and their orphaned sons and daughters. We continue to serve emergency food aid to widow mother-headed families and their orphaned children in Afghanistan and Yemen. In the United Kingdom, this winter will be challenging for so many families on meager resources due to spiraling fuel prices. The unfortunate challenge of whether to heat or eat is a real heart-wrenching one needing to be made too often by these families usually dependent on food aid. As we support them and their children emerge from food poverty let us stand with them through this winter – go on let the warmth in your heart create the warmth to keep thousands of the most vulnerable families around the world safe and warm.
