The Widows' Project provides support for older and younger widows.
An example of a younger lady in great need is Begimai from Kyrgyzstan who is 32 years old and was born deaf. She married Pamir who was also deaf, the first deaf person in the area to accept the Gospel and become a Christian. He discipled his wife and helped her grow spiritually. They were both active in the life of the church.
They had four wonderful children who were all born healthy and hearing. In the summer of 2017, Pamir, Begimai, now pregnant with their fifth child, and their family were serving at a Christian camp. Not far from the camp site was a fast-flowing river.
Two girl campers decided to take a swim, but could not manage the current and started to drown. Pamir jumped into the water and managed to reach them and pull them to safety, but he himself was weakened and was carried away by the current and drowned.
Begimai was standing on the bank of the river and saw her husband dying while saving the lives of others. She was overwhelmed by grief, but she cared for their children, and it gave her strength to live on. She called her new daughter Pamira, in memory of the father she had never seen.
