Collecting, processing and sending aid overseas costs a lot of money and last year we spent £49,000 on shipping alone. We are given a lot of high value medical aid and colostomy as well as tractors to send abroad. The money and other goods donated (those that are not suitable for sending abroad) help us to pay for sending aid abroad and running the charity.

The total value of the donations (goods and money) we received in 2018 was £1,900,000. Of this:


Went abroad as aid


Transportation & Shipping


Operating costs (warehouse, staff, admin)
