A Bread Factory Provides Hope to a Widow

Aine Moorad

A widow in her late 60s is sitting beside her disabled son as other family members feed him, all in a small apartment, crowded to capacity. But he is only one of her three mentally and physically disabled sons who require care 24 hours a day.

Shams Albaydani relied on her husband for financial security, but since his passing, she’s left to fend for her children. All she has is a pension, which isn’t enough to support the family.

“If (Allah) gives then we eat, if he doesn’t, we don’t,” she says.  

However, thanks to your generous support, this family has been a beneficiary of the bread factory for the last two years. Shams gives her disabled sons bread by soaking it in milk as it's easier to chew.

Our bread factory in Aden, Yemen supports thousands of people at the brink of starvation providing free bread to orphans, widows, and people with disabilities.

According to the World Food Programme, malnutrition rates among women and children in Yemen remain the highest in the world. There are many more families like Shams waiting to be helped.

Despite being in such dire circumstances, Shams is forever grateful. “I thank the donors. I pray for the donors and their children.”
