Too many people throughout the world do not have the food that they need to sustain themselves. Every minute of each day, many children die as a result of malnutrition.
Many millions more live with illnesses brought about by a lifetime’s effect of malnourishment; simply not having the food that they need to live and grow. As well as children, adults face the same situation daily facing the anguish of simply not knowing where their next meal is coming from. ILM UK helps to provide a generous and plentiful supply of food aid throughout our operating areas to children suffering from the most severe malnutrition.
ILM UK’s food packs usually include staple foods and basic necessities like wheat grain, rice, pulses, oil and sugar. The contents of each pack will vary according to region as well as the context in which they are being distributed. Food packs are also provided in times of emergency: during a conflict or following a natural disaster. They are a life-line for families who have been misplaced or have little to get by on. Our food packs are chosen for one purpose… because they literally save lives.
Our work to provide food for people tackling hunger continues throughout the year. But seasonally, we’re able to boost our efforts. During the month of Ramadan, we provide food parcels, warm meals and bottled water for fasting Muslims.
