The Widow's Friend

we support The Widow's Friend, a ministry that includes two medical clinics, an orphan’s home, a hostel for girls and a high school for the deaf. Officially recognized and registered by the Social Welfare Ministry of the Bangladesh government, the Widow’s Friend is making a tremendous impact in one of the poorest and most populated nations on earth.

The widows of the country are considered social outcasts and shunned by even their dead husband’s families. The ministry supports widows to produce beautiful embroidered silks, which are sold and cherished across America, both for the art they represent and for the hope they have brought to the lives of otherwise desperate women.

The Home of Joy was started and run by Faith Willard. Gateway supports 3 orphans and 3 widows who live at the Home of Joy.
