Widowed mothers wish they could feed their children. Donate Iftar and Suhoor Food Parcels for Ramadan. Hundreds of thousands of orphans in widowed families have lost the breadwinner of their house due to an accident, disease, conflict or murder. Your Iftar and Suhoor Food Parcel could become their lifeline.

Delivering Food Parcels to Save Lives

Widows are ill-treated, taken advantage of and often abused. Because of their status, their children are also subjected to the same treatment. If it wasn’t bad enough that widowed families are dealing with the loss of a loved one, they are also left starving and alone without any income and financial support.

For just £30, you can feed a widowed family of five for an entire month. That’s less than your average weekly food bill.

Orphans in Need relies on your generosity to provide Food Parcels to widows and orphans to help relieve some of their hardships. We deliver support to 15 of the most impoverished countries in the world including Jammu & Kashmir, India, Palestine, Pakistan, The Gambia and Sierra Leone.

Last year, your donations meant we were able to provide over 12 million meals to needy widows and orphans worldwide. With your help, we aim to provide 15 million meals this year.

What our Food Parcels Provide

World hunger is on the rise more than ever 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 will contain nutritious food items that could save the lives of orphans and widows in the most impoverished communities worldwide.

Each Iftar and Suhoor Food Parcel generally 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.

Help us feed the fasting.

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.

Providing a safer future for Widows and Orphans in need

To make it easier for you to donate we provide the option for one-off £30 donations or monthly recurring £30 donations that allow us to better plan for providing future support. Donors can also provide a one-off donation of £360 (less than a £1 a day) that will ensure a family in need is given food parcel support for an entire year (12 months).
