Celebrate a life event – Meet and Heal

“With mirth and laughter, let old wrinkles come”

Most widows experience loneliness and depression in old age, either as a result of
being alone, abandoned or due to lack of close family ties and reduced connections with their culture of origin, which results in an inability to actively participate in the community activities. With advancing age and circumstances, it is inevitable that widow mothers in Vrindavan lose connection with their roots, sometimes family and their communities. Come celebrate your special days or visit and meet our widow mothers and foster stronger connections. Your support will help in strengthening emotional, physical and mental well being of widow mothers. Celebrate yours and Your parents/ childrens, special days like birthdays, wedding anniversary etc by sponsoring a special meal. ( Celebrated with bhajan singing, prayers and blessings) We welcome you to come and serve food yourself that day, if possible.

Clothing and winter wear

You can help us provide sarees, blankets and warm clothes for winter. When the cold winter months approach, many do not even have warm blankets and clothing. At an older age and among the elderly, the danger of exposure to cold is particularly high, and even with a mild drop in environmental temperature, there is already a risk of reduced body temperature; blood vessels tend to constrict, making it more difficult for oxygen to reach the entire body. Most widow mothers face constant colds and aching bones.
