World of Worth is passionate about restoring dignity and hope to women and girls, helping them to understand that they have value and worth. We want women who have been marginalised, neglected and abandoned to experience love and compassion, and provide them with opportunities to transform their world through our WOW Programmes.
Women are disadvantaged in many ways. It is common for women to be marginalised, face gender inequality and to be subjected to violence and abuse. Many women lose all rights to property when their husbands die, and are left destitute, living on the streets with their children. Many girls are denied the right of an education, have no access to healthcare and are not safe, even in their own homes.
This means that women and girls are vulnerable and oppressed.
The impact of COVID-19 has greatly affected communities and families around the world, particularly the most marginalised and vulnerable who live in poverty. The recent estimates that 135 million people in 55 countries now face acute hunger. This number is set to rise to 265 million by the end of the
year. Our project leaders have reported that they have heard of families who have resorted to taking out loans just to feed their families.
With the loss of their jobs and small businesses, and therefore no regular income, our families face the threat of eviction from their homes, and the prospect of severe hunger. During times like these, the risk of disease increases, as well as fear and uncertainty.
Thanks to your ongoing support, WOW has been providing help to hundreds of families every month by supplying essential food parcels and paying their rent. Please continue to pray and support WOW as we work closely with families in Africa, India, Bulgaria and the Philippines.
