    Can you give the whole sentence? Any additional context?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    The Institute has established a trust fund for the relief of poverty by providing assistance to people experiencing severe financial hardship and who are members of ..............

    Bereavement, old age, unemployment through ill-health, accident are examples of causes of poverty which may be considered in applications to the Trust Fund. The trustees may also consider applications where members have been unemployed for at least six months and are experiencing severe financial hardship.

    Does unemployment through ill-health mean unemployment due to ill-health?
