Some of the biggest challenges facing orphans and vulnerable children are hunger and malnutrition. Nurun Foundation volunteers have seen hundreds of children waiting in food lines for a single meal. No doubt, food is essential for survival, yet numerous children, especially orphans, receive only one meal a day. Nurun foundations feed children at The Welcome Places in Sarail and Dhaka. Though these are sites where the food distribution regularly takes place, Nurun Foundation distributes and delivers food parcels to various households in other surrounding areas. All of Nurun’s feeding programs are funded through donations. To make a donation, click here!
