To date, Hidaya has supported more than 3,500 marriages under marriage support project.
Due to crushing poverty, countless families in South Asian countries are unable to have their daughters and sisters get married. Unfortunately, due to societal pressures, it is not uncommon for people to resort to extreme measures such as committing suicide.
Hidaya Foundation makes an effort to support families in these difficult situations by providing basic items necessary for newlywed girls, including dresses, shoes, utensils, bedding, fans, sewing machines, and more, along with some financial assistance to offset marriage expenses. Depending on the region, it costs approximately $200 to $300 to support the marriage of one young woman.
Along with new bought items, families are given items for the newlywed girls via the Container Shipment for In-Kind Donations project.
