Kee Widows – The charity for widows in Kenya

Since 2010, Kee Widows has supported widows and their families within the county of Machakos in Kenya. As a registered not-for-profit charity (No.3774566), our goal is to help a widow in need whenever they come to us, but to do that we need your support. We are committed to helping widows in Machakos break free of poverty and degradation, so that they have the skills and support needed to become economically sufficient.

The importance of supporting widows in Kenya

The struggles and living conditions of widows in Kenya are often invisible, however here at Kee Widows we are here to help their families through their hardships. Not only have these women lost their husbands, but due to cultural pressure many of them are unable to inherit their husband’s property and land.

Sadly, this creates an uncertain future for widows who have are forced to raise their families alone. In some rural parts of kenya,widowhood means you are of little value, culturally widows are considered impure and tradition dictates they must be “cleansed” of their husbands deaths . With new husband cleansing through unsafe sex many widows lose their freedom overnight while also facing the potential risk of HIV and STD infections.

For many women in Kenya, their husbands are the main breadwinner, so following their sad death the widows face immense financial pressure. In a country without financial assistance, widows are forced to either work or marry, with all dignity and freedom of choice taken away.

Many of the widows in Kenya rely on selling their wares at local markets, simply to earn a modest income, however the Coronavirus pandemic has put a stop to this vital income stream. Combined with an absence in government financial support, the widows and their families are left to fend for themselves, with indifference and discrimination from their local communities.

With your donations we can empower widows in Kenya both financially and by providing access to useful skills, which they can use to lift their families out of a lifetime of poverty. From simple food donations and basic sanitary ware to financial aid, your donation will save the lives of so many families.
