Widow Assistance


Fighting poverty and empowering women are some of the Development and Relief Foundation’s main objectives.

According to the Iraqi Ministry of Planning, Iraqis on average make less than $2.20 (US) a day. Iraq has a painful population of over 2 million widows. With low literacy rates, women struggle to find any kind of employment.

DRF provides women with income generating skills, such as sewing and home economics training to help them support their families. Not only has DRF provided tailoring skills to women, but a large number of widows received free sewing machines thanks to the Sepaus Foundation of Orange County.
