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 15 countries throughout Asia and Africa. Many families rely on the assistance 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 2020, Orphan in Need donor’s food parcel donations to widows and orphans enabled our teams to provide over 8 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.
