No mother wants to see her children go hungry. Our food parcel donations ensure widows and orphans worldwide can receive support when they have nowhere else to turn.

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 families and themselves. This is why your support is so important in providing essentials to widows and their families.

Helping Orphans and Widows Is Easier Than You Think

£35 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 food parcels can feed an average widowed family of up to five people. It includes staples such as clean water, wheat flour, cooking oil, rice, lentils, salt, sugar, and much more. We often take clean water and food for granted, but widows and orphans are so grateful and appreciative of these food parcels.

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.

The Impact of Our Food Charity

In 2022, 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.

The Power of Muslim Charity Widow and Orphan Appeals

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) emphasised the importance of caring for orphans in particular: “The best household among the Muslims is a household wherein an orphan is treated well. And the worst household among the Muslims is a household wherein an orphan is ill-treated” (Ibn Majah). Giving to charity has never been easier. You can donate to our online charity and be a means of providing essential food packages to people in need.
