In Israel, Bedouin widows who have settled in villages often have few resources to sustain their well-being. The author, a Bedouin clinical social worker, set up a culturally sensitive widows' support group in a medical clinic to help these women deal with material and personal hardships. Through sharing, mutual support, and mutual helping, the women were empowered to deal with their grief, isolation, economic difficulties, problems with children, and negative societal attitudes.
