International Needs has been involved on the ground in Bangladesh since 1974. Initially led by Rev. Smith Adhikary and now carried on by his son MacDonald (Mac), International Needs ministers to the people of Bangladesh in a variety of ways.

One of the primary focuses involves serving orphaned and vulnerable children. In areas of extreme poverty, children are at great risk of being abandoned, often leading them to resort to a life of crime and violence. International Needs is dedicated to stepping into children’s lives before this takes place, giving them a safe place to learn and introducing them to the accepting arms of a Father who loves them unconditionally.
