April 2022 Zimpeto Widow's Home Update
Pictured below are three of our precious widows, living in their own homes, provided by Iris:
Vovo (Grandma) Rosalina was abandoned by her family after she had to have one of her legs amputated. She never had children. We provide caregivers to provide for her needs and cover the salary of the helpers who do her cleaning, cook, wash her clothes, and offer loving companionship.

Vovo Helena began with limited assistance many years ago but is now in need of much care. We met her many years ago when she attended our church in the dump. With failing health, we have hired a loving woman to take care of Helena's needs; cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc., and provides companionship. When we discovered that her house was in terrible condition (and was affecting her health, Iris did a complete renovation of her home, which includes adding a bathroom and a new fence wall.

Thank you to the IMC donors who are giving to provide for these precious women. Iris Zimpeto currently provides for five widows and is in the process of coming alongside a sixth.
