Lean Team, Big Impact


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closure of our charity after 35 years of serving refugee communities worldwide. 

This decision, taken on 8 April 2024, was reached after careful consideration of various factors, including changes in the macro-economic landscape which has created a more challenging fundraising environment for us.

Our dedicated team has worked tirelessly to refocus the charity, engage with the partners we work with, craft proposals to grant givers and try to attract new giving audiences whilst, at the same time, reducing our costs. However, in a difficult giving landscape, we have sadly not been able to generate enough funds quickly enough, and very reluctantly took the decision to close.

We want to express the deepest gratitude to anyone who has supported us over the years. Your generous donations and volunteering have sustained the organisation through numerous challenges, including the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

Your contributions have enabled us to make a meaningful impact on the lives of countless individuals. Your support has provided life-saving assistance to orphaned children in Uganda, mothers and children in Jordan, Ukraine, and South Sudan, and many others who have been displaced and affected by conflict and crisis.

While our journey now ends, we encourage you to continue supporting similar causes, as the needs of refugee communities in developing countries remain dire. Countless organisations are working tirelessly to provide assistance, and your support can make a significant difference to organisations such as Refugees International, Refugee Aid, Refugee Council, Refugee Action, and International Refugee Assistance Project. If you are also interested in exploring ways of supporting our existing projects directly, please also let us know.
