Where we work

Orphans in Need have teams of volunteers across various countries in Africa and the Middle East, working to connect orphans and widows with the help they urgently need.

We are actively working with some of the hardest-hit communities in countries where the rate of poverty is rife, owing to political strain, slow economic development, conflict, extreme weather conditions, or a mixture of all the above. The challenges that orphans and widows face differ by country, which is why we run appeals across the regions where we work.

The countries where Orphans in Need are active include:

The Support We Provide

It is our mission to provide humanitarian assistance everywhere it is needed to everyone who requires it. We work to provide relief from poverty for orphans as well as wider communities through vital food packs, safe and warm accommodation, access to treatment and medical care, sanitation services and education for orphans to improve their prospects.

Our work has not gone unnoticed, having received the Charity of the Year award in 2015. Although it is fantastic to be recognised, the true prize is the look on the faces of the widows and orphans we help every day, working to make their lives a little bit better than they were before.
