Make Her World Better

Meet Regina a well-deserving widow serving her neighborhood with the little she has. Her home was about to crash to the ground when we met.


Karis Widows, a program of BHH, contracted local labor and supplies to rebuild her home from ground up. Regina was the recipient of our first home rebuild.

Regina no longer has to worry about her home. She has a safe and secure place as she serves her community. We are expanding our work to 6 homes a year in Nicaragua, Central America. You can help a well deserving widow gain hope and security.

Why Widows?

This all began for Byron in 1979 in the mountains of Guatemala during a summer missions trip as a 24-year-old who was hungry to do something more than care for myself.

As a Nicaraguan I meet the widows face to face and get to oversee the home rebuilds from the start. The widows are so joyful when they see their new home.
