Thank you for your prompt response.
There is no well-founded fee of persecution for her. Her family and her late husbands family hold her responsible for her husbands death, so they won't help her out in any way and won't make her life (an that of her children) easy for her. Besides that her family (and the community she lived in in Sri Lanka) really don't appreciate her to be undertaking and wanting to make something of her live (and better it), because as a woman you're not supposed to be active like that. But there is no real ground for seeking asylum, I think.
I hope I answered the question sufficiently like this.
