To visit  the widows and the fatherless

there is an obligation upon the extended family
or the Christian Community to be supportive of the
widows and the Fatherless.

Fatherlessness  takes many forms:
  • a father who has died.
  • a father who is absent through divorce or seperation ( weather partial or no access)
  • a father who is in effect absent - thee but not there
  • a father who abuses or condones abuse by his relative, collegue, or friend
