Largest concentration of poor people in the world
they rely on the generosity of others to get by
Food Parcel For Widows
India is home to the largest concentration of poor people in the world, with 68.8% of the population living on less than $2 a day. 1.8 million are homeless and 73 million lack adequate housing.
In a country blighted by poverty, it is the young, the elderly and the widowed who are hit the hardest. Our widows’ project provides widowed women with food parcels so they do not go hungry. With no skills or income, and no husband to provide, they rely on the generosity of others to get by.
In India, we have been building hand pumps to bring safe drinking water to its residents. Usually, they would walk for miles in order to fulfil their daily water consumption needs. We have built communal water pumps, allowing them to fill up with ease and avoid contaminated sources. We are continuously working hard to build more, to help the thousands of people that are still in great need.
This sustainable water project aims to reach as many vulnerable people as possible. We aim to alleviate their suffering, wherever they may be, and provide them with the most basic necessity that is clean, safe drinking water.
Help us to make this vision a reality.
Widow with Children Sponsorship
Losing a spouse is heart-breaking, but when that person is also the sole breadwinner and provider within the household, it is even more devastating. Sadly, for thousands of women across the world living in poverty, the death of a spouse leaves them in anguish as they are left with young children and no means of income to provide for them. Everyday become a battle to survive and they are constantly worried for their child’s welfare and future. Our Widow Sponsorship program ensures a widow struggling to provide for her children is supported and provided with all the necessities, each month.
Medical Aid & Treatment
GRF provides funding for operations and procedures for sick and injured people in their time of need. Many are unable to afford basic medical attention, so when they are really sick, they rely solely on generous donations from others to get better, or risk further deterioration or even death.
This project allows us to assist in the cost of medicine for patients who require it long or short term but cannot afford the cost. We help them to maintain their health with desperately needed medication so they can be around to look after their families.
