In a bid to restore the lost confidence of widows, an organisation- Nature’s Care and Social Welfare Society, has decided to honour the men in Raipur who marry widows by sponsoring the couple’s honeymoon trip.
They announced, during an event in Raipur, that the couple would be given 4 days and 3 nights honeymoon package for free. The couple would be able to choose from 45 destinations around Asia.
The organisation has also offered to appeal to the state government for jobs, house among other things for the couple if they require any such help.
The director of the organisation DR Vineeta Pandey said, “This campaign is a step towards providing widows with their lost respect.”
Marriages which were fixed at the event will take place on the auspicious occasion of Akshay Tritiya which falls on May 2 this year, she added.
75 men and 55 women, some of them bearing children, attended the event held at Maharashtra Mandal in Choubey Colony. Men and women from various regions including Raipur, UP, MP, Maharashta, Gujarat, Odisha and Haryana also attended the event.
