As life is now resembling something more ‘normal’ and we encounter lighter and brighter days, with restrictions being lifted and opportunities to do more, thoughts have turned towards the desperate need for people to fundraise. There is definitely more to smile about now and so we ask you to seriously consider fundraising for us. Whether it’s seeing how many loaves of banana bread you can make in 4 hours, how many 5 mile walks you can complete in 2 weeks, how many BBQs you can have during the summer or how many cream teas you can make and give away, every donation made in support of our work will be greatly appreciated.

COVID has meant that our usual streams of fundraising have had to stop over the last year which of course affects donations and support for the work. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the need for help around the world has greatly increased. We are receiving reports from each of the countries we work in, for an increase in the ways in which we can help, which just highlights the need for more funds. The demand for our help and support has increased, yet the ability and opportunity to fundraise has decreased. It is a very difficult situation.

It has been a challenging time for all charities to say the least but now with this new sense of opportunity, we ask you to please raise much-needed funds and awareness of our work. We can help you do this, so you don’t have to go it alone. We would love to help you and can provide you with ideas and publicity material. So please let us know if this is something that you can help us with.
