About For the Widow Ministries

Sharing the hope and love of Christ to widows in need

For the Widow Ministries provides essential aid to widows in the Dominican Republic by addressing their immediate physical needs while also sharing the love of God with them and their community. We strive to bring hope and a renewed sense of security into their lives by following the biblical mandate to practice true religion that is undefiled by caring for widows in their affliction.
