Kosovo Widows of War
Widows of war receive 60Euros for maintenance. With this meagre income they can hardly make ends meet. If they do have sons, they normally take charge in the upkeeping of the family with their mum. Ngos like Medicos del Mundo have opened workshops rooms where the widows can engage in creating house wares like cloths, towels, etc. by knitting and sewing. They then sell their products. A woman says that overall there is more comfort in being together than in making an income as generally most women in Kosovo know how to sew or knit.
