“And they feed, for the love of Allah, the poor, the orphan, and the captive..”
Al Quran, Surah Al-Insaan verse 08
A food parcel is a valuable lifeline when a family loses the breadwinner of the house to an accident, disease, or various causes. How else would a widow feed herself and her family when she has no money and no resources?
Orphans in Need provides food parcels to help widows and orphans affected by poverty. Many widows in the fourteen countries we work in across Asia and Africa, rely on your generosity to feed their families month by month. In 2016, your donations meant we were able to provide over 8.5 million meals to needy widows and orphans, with your help we aim to provide even more this year. We also aim to provide to those suffering from starvation due to poverty across the world in Asia as well as the Middle East and Africa.
Each food parcel generally contains rice, flour, oil, lentils, pulses, spices, tea, sugar, vegetables, dates, soap and sanitation products. In addition, we make sure that all the produce is sourced locally with a focus on nutritional benefit and longevity. Not only will you be helping the vulnerable, and the widows and orphans, but your support will help local economies prosper.
