Grieving, hungry and alone. Widowed mothers are struggling to feed their children and survive each day. You can ease their hardship by donating Iftar and Suhoor Food Parcels this Ramadan. Thousands of women and children have lost their husband and father and are left bereaved, in pain and without income to meet their daily needs. Your Iftar and Suhoor Food Parcel could become their lifeline.

Your compassion can save their lives.

Conflict and natural disaster claims lives every day. When women lose their husbands, they often become vulnerable, ostracised and taken advantage of. Because of their status, their children are also subjected to the same treatment. Reeling with grief, they are left starving and alone without any income or support.

For just £35, you can feed a widowed family of five for an entire month. That’s less than your average weekly food bill.

With your generosity, Orphans in Need provides Food Parcels to widows and orphans to help relieve their hardship. We deliver support to fifteen of the most impoverished countries in the world including Jammu & Kashmir, India, Palestine, Pakistan, Somalia, The Gambia and Sierra Leone.

Last year, your donations meant we were able to provide over 15 million meals to needy widows and orphans worldwide, giving them sustenance, comfort and letting them know that you care.

What our Food Parcels Provide

World hunger is continuing to rise as the price of food increases every day. Worldwide, approximately 1 in 9 people have been affected with over 815 million people suffering from chronic malnutrition. At Orphans in Need, our Food Parcels contain nutritious food items that can save the lives of vulnerable orphans and widows suffering in poverty.

Each Iftar and Suhoor Food Parcel contains nutritional staples such as rice, flour, lentils, pulses, oil, spices, tea, milk powder, sugar, dates, sanitation products and much more. All the produce is sourced locally with a focus on nutritional benefits and longevity. When you donate with us, not only will you be helping vulnerable widows and orphans, but your support will help local economies prosper.

This is Khadija Abdi

Khadija Abdi moved into an IDP camp with her mother and four children, after she lost her husband. IDP camps are overflooded with refugees and are known for their lack of hygiene, food and clean water. 

This is Daddy Mammy Coker

As part of our visit to Sierra Leone we spoke to many children in the hope of finding out more about the lives of orphans in Freetown. We asked the usual questions about their favourite subjects, their hobbies and what they want to be when they grow up.

This is Yusupha

Yusupha is the mother of 4 children. Yusupha’s husband passed away in 2015 from a stroke after this, she became a widow and her children became orphans. Because there was now no sole breadwinner in the family, Yusupha struggled to provide food. Her daily income only carried the family through a day or two at most.

You can provide a safer future for widows and Orphans in Need.

To make it easier for you to donate, we provide the option for one-off £35 donations or monthly recurring £35 donations. 

This allows us to plan for our winter appeals providing children in need with winter clothing and warm blankets for cold winter nights. Donors can also provide a one-off donation of £420 that will ensure a family in need is given food parcel support for an entire year.
