The spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is the most serious global health security threat in decades. Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak, and we are deeply grateful to the thousands of healthcare workers who are on the front lines helping their communities.
Charity Right is an international food aid organisation that works in neglected communities around the world, feeding forgotten and underserved individuals. Our meals support schoolchildren and adults in refugee camps, slums, jungles, and remote villages across Asia, Africa, and Europe. Currently we are operating in Malaysia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sudan, and Turkey. Children from these areas don't often have the opportunity to escape poverty, but by providing regular meals at school, they are more likely to stay in education, which means they have a chance at a prosperous future.

Poverty is among the factors for children from low-income families to be at higher risk of dropping out of school and eventually absorbed into the workforce. We aim to solve this problem through our ‘Feed to Educate’ program.
In Bangladesh, 33% of all children under five suffer from malnutrition. Stunting (one of its symptoms) affects half of children this age. That means there are 7 million children who can't develop to their full mental and physical potential because they don’t have enough food.
Between 2011 and 2016, over 1500 children under the age of 5 died in the Thar Desert, Pakistan. Within the first ten days of 2016, 17 children had died of starvation. Doctors say that malnutrition is the most common cause of death.
It's estimated that eastern Sudan is home to over 100,000 Eritrean refugees, and has been since the 1960s due to the war for Eritrean independence, open-ended military service, and human rights violations. The majority of these refugees live in camps amid conditions that the UN once described as "intolerable."
Over 1 million Uyghurs living in China have been subject to arbitrary arrests, confinement to camps, increased surveillance, and laws that ban religious items such as the Qur'an and Hijab. In essence, these Uyghurs are forbidden to be Muslim, and are victims of severe human rights abuses and violations.
