For many years the focus of Media 7 has been the support of widows and single mothers. Most of the women are young mothers with small children who struggle to meet the most basic needs of their families. In the last five years, 700 women have come to us expressing the need for food, clothing, medical assistance, furniture and school books for their children. These very basic needs would go unmet without Media 7. Also, Media 7 has assisted in the training of 200 of these women to learn a skill, find a job or even start a small business.
The Scripture that motivates our ministry is Isaiah 54:4-5—Do not be afraid, you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband—the Lord Almighty is His Name—the Holy One of Israelis your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth. A gift of $50.00 provides a food package for one widow and her family (4-8 members) for one month. A donation of $25.00 will purchase school books for one child. Even a gift of $10.00 will bring joy to a child as it provides a birthday gift. Your kindness of any amount will be comfort and blessing to struggling widows and single mothers and their children.
James 1:27—Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world
