where we work
We have a presence in 46 countries across 5 continents, raising funds and awareness and working with local communities to affect positive change or respond quickly and effectively to humanitarian situations.
where the money goes
As a not-for-profit organisation, our funds are used entirely to assist us in achieving the change we seek to see.
