The 1st World Agenda on Widowhood Development in Africa 2017 - Tuesday 4th of April

WIDOWHOOD:

There are 258 Million Widows and 584 Million fatherless children in the world over.

Nigeria has an estimated 3,531,682 Million Widows according to the 2015 World Widows Report by the Loomba Foundation. In Nigeria, there are about 3.650,000 (three million, six hundred and fifty million). The numbers keep rising by the minute. More widows are dying for lack of support to continue, leaving their children orphaned, homeless, uneducated and without adequate security.

Worst affected by conflict and insurgency are widows in Afghanistan, Iraq, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Syria, northeast Nigeria, southeast Niger, west Chad and north Cameroon. In Sub-Saharan Africa the worst conditions are faced by evicted and abandoned widows with dependants and by those caught up in Ebola areas, exacerbated by traditional ‘cleansing’ rituals.

Widows with only female children and child widows aged between 10 and 17 face severe discrimination in many developing countries. Social norms around sexual behavior remain counterproductive with extreme poverty as a driver of ‘exchange sex’ and ‘survival sex’ relationships and poor quality healthcare.

Widows in developed countries are also affected by welfare cuts and increased insecurity.

Customary ‘cleansing’ rituals, where widows are required to drink the water with which their dead husband’s body has been washed and to have sex with a relative, spread disease and violate the dignity of widows in many Sub-Saharan countries. Widows are regularly accused of killing their husbands either deliberately or through neglect – including by transmitting HIV/AIDS – in India, Nepal, Papua New Guinea and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Systematic seizure of property and evictions by the late husband’s family remains widespread in Angola, Bangladesh, Botswana, Republic of Congo, DR Congo, India, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

HOW LONG SHOULD THIS CONTINUE? NOT Anymore!   WHY THIS CONFERENCE PROJECT?

The time is now to start implementing solution measures, put in place working activities to eradicate problems, empower widows and sensitize communities on the various actions we will be putting in place from now.
