Unfortunately, due to societal pressures, it is not uncommon for people to resort to extreme measures such as committing suicide. Friends Of Disables Society 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 $500 to $800 to support the marriage of one young woman.
