The majority of people living in poverty in the developing world are widows and their children. The economic, cultural or social reality is such that men are the main breadwinners. If they die, women and children often struggle to survive and have to beg help from others or go out to work.
Education, play and other childhood pursuits are a luxury they cannot afford.
The mother’s of these children need enough food to feed their family. If they had this, children would no longer face the burden of bringing in money to feed the hungry mouths of their siblings. It would give them the hope and ability to go to school, reclaim their childhood and get out of the cycle of poverty.
Orphans in Need provide a food pack to help widows and orphans affected by poverty. A donation of £30 a month (£1 a day) pays for a food pack for an average-sized family of five. Foods are selected according to local availability and taste and we make sure that they are nutritionally beneficial and sufficient for one month. They contain: rice, flour, oil, lentils/pulses, spices, tea, sugar, vegetables and soap and sanitation products.
Around the world, we have 1,000 widows and families, waiting for your generous support. You can donate your Zakat, Sadakah, Lillah or any
