Widows and Abandoned Children

In South Asian culture, most widows are seen as a curse and shunned from society. Depending on the circumstances, they’re often ignored by even their close relatives.

Abandoned children also face extremely difficult conditions. On their own, they search for food in waste dumps and make their homes with trash and rubble.

Widows: A Desperate Struggle for Survival

For over 40 million widows in South Asia, life is a desperate struggle for survival. Blamed for their husbands’ deaths, they’re forsaken by their families, shunned by their friends and despised by their communities.

  • One in four homes in India is home to a widow.
  • 92 percent of India’s women age 70 and older are widows.
  • Street begging or prostitution often becomes a way of life.
  • Many are left caring for their children with little help from relatives.

 

In order to provide for themselves and their children, many resort to gathering food from the trash. Some gain income only from selling their bodies on the streets. For those who cannot bear the shame, suicide is their only escape
