Imagine feeling cold and not being able to find shelter from the chilly winds or have the resources available to get a comfortable blanket or coat to wrap yourself in. That is the reality faced by many of the orphaned children we support through our winter blanket and clothing appeal. When winter is on its way, those living in poverty don’t get to excitedly anticipate fireplaces and hot chocolate, all they want is a simple place to find comfort and warmth when the temperatures begin to drop.
Delivering Warmth to Save Lives
At Orphans in Need, we work tirelessly on the ground to deliver much-needed winter warmth kits. Each kit gives a child a warm blanket, coat, hat, scarf and gloves of their own to protect them from temperatures that fall as low as -6 degrees and, with every passing winter, the temperature changes become more extreme and cause more risk to vulnerable lives.
Every year as the temperature falls the mortality level rises and the only way we can change this is if we help the neediest of civilians, the orphan children and widows who have nowhere else to turn. Every winter warmth kit your donations provide is a gift of love from you that can bring warmth and save their lives.
Give Today and Protect the Future of Children in Need
We provide several options for giving to make it easier for our donors. A one-off donation of £25 provides a winter warmth kit to an orphan in need, the £60 tier will provide support to a family of five for an entire month, including winter clothing and food and £150 ensures we can provide a month’s worth of heating to an orphanage. You can also choose to give these amounts regularly each month and allow us to plan future support for orphans and widows across the world.
Last year, on top of the winter warmth kits, we were able to build homes for widows to give them better shelter from the icy winds. This year with your support we hope to do much more and reach more families in need with aid from our winter appeal.
Vulnerable lives are at risk, and this year, your help is needed more than ever.
The 2019/2020 pandemic will influence a greater struggle to survive winter this year for the millions of people living in poverty and the millions more that have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. We endeavour to support as many families as we can, reaching more people living in poor conditions and suffering in poverty to provide warmth kits to protect them from the cold before the winter arrives.
Curfew in Kashmir
The situation in Kashmir continues to remain bleak and as the lockdown continues, food stocks are dropping rapidly with very little resource able to get through to replenish food stores. With your help so far, we have distributed over 6000 food parcels to the poor and the needy in Kashmir. With the restrictions still in place, orphans, widows, and struggling families are lacking the basic food and fuel supplies that could help them survive this winter and beyond, with no anticipated end date to their suffering in sight.
Please donate to those suffering in Kashmir and help us provide the support that will save lives. Click here to give to our Kashmir Emergency Appeal.
