The food parcels provided by Orphans in Need are a valuable lifeline when families suffer the trauma of losing the home’s main breadwinner to disease, accident, or sadly murder.

With no resources, money or support, widows become desperate and lost with no ability to feed their family and themselves.

£30 a month – approximately a third of the average developed country’s weekly shopping bill – can make a huge difference to families in need, providing a food parcel donation that allows us to feed a needy family of five for a whole month.

Our dedicated and compassionate teams are working to provide nutritious food parcels to help the widows and orphans that have been affected by poverty across 13 countries throughout Asia and Africa. Many families rely on the generosity of charities that provide help for widows and orphans to feed their children each month and we hope to reach as many people in need as we can.

In 2021, your food parcel donations to our widows and orphans charity enabled our teams to provide over 12 million meals to families in need and together with your assistance, we aim to provide even more support this year.

Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, every food parcel we provided to families contained necessary hygiene kits to keep our beneficiaries and their children safe and we will continue to do so.
