She became a widow when her husband passed away. You know she had to deal with the pain, the loss, and the disorientation. She also had to shoulder the financial and family responsibilities.
You know of her struggles. But you also perceived a quiet strength in her. An inner strength that has somehow enabled her to embrace the pain, conquer the challenges, and live victoriously without the pillar of her life. As she overcame the odds, she began to reach out to others struggling with grief and loss.
If you are inspired by this remarkable woman, give her the recognition she deserves by nominating her to be one of Wicares ‘Women of Strength’. 20 outstanding widows will be selected and each will receive SGD$800 cash and invitation to Wicare’s 20th Anniversary Dinner. Submit your nomination form by 25 September 2018.
Wicare's ‘Women of Strength’ is a public awareness campaign by Wicare Support Group, in commemoration of its 20th anniversary. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the struggles of the widows and at the same time, give hope to the bereaved that it is possible to live a life of purpose.
