Camphill Foundation UK

Camphill Foundation provides much-needed financial support to projects which greatly enhance the quality of life of adults, children and young people with learning disabilities. Camphill communities throughout the UK and Ireland offer safe and supportive environments in a variety of semi-rural and urban settings where individuals can feel at home and develop their personal abilities and interests. There is also a strong sense of belonging to a diverse but cohesive intentional community and supported living network. Work opportunities abound, giving a real sense of meaning, purpose and achievement, which is essential for a person’s well-being.

Camphill Foundation supports development projects such as the building of new accommodation, establishing new workshops and facilities, developing agricultural and horticultural activities, providing new equipment, and various educational, training, cultural and social initiatives. Support is often in the form of grants to help projects get started and loans at a low rate of interest, usually over several years.

Supporting Camphill Foundation means also fostering a new understanding and recognition of people with disabilities and enabling them to develop and make use of their astonishing talents and skills as fully engaged, talented and co-responsible members of the community carrying out important and meaningful work which is both fulfilling for them and of great value to others.

Siloam Christian Ministries

Through Siloam you could sponsor a child’s education in Kenya or Vietnam. Or, you could help rescue an abandoned baby at the Rehoboth Children’s Centre in the Philippines until they are able to join a ‘forever family.’

In Kenya, Siloam provides financial assistance to the Lambwe Christian School for the Deaf as well as two children’s homes and a residential high school run by Blessed Generation who care for children in need of a home following a family breakdown or abandonment.

In Pakistan, Siloam supports co-workers working in the brick kilns where many Christians are bonded labourers. They can help a Pakistani young lady become financially self-sufficient by providing a sewing machine and training.

Siloam empowers indigenous churches to arrange children’s Bible camps in Eastern Europe, Portugal and Peru for disadvantaged children.

At Christmas time, Siloam dispenses food parcels for desperately poor pensioners and impoverished families in Bulgaria, the Ukraine and Portugal through local churches.

Siloam helps overseas projects that don’t necessarily attract the attention of the larger Charities. The Trustees are satisfied in knowing that the projects Siloam partners with overseas comply with all the accounting criteria demanded by the UK Charity Commissioners. Child protection policies and practices are also regularly reviewed and inspections are carried out on a regular basis to overseas projects to gain material to be shared with supporters in the UK.

Presently, Siloam is sponsoring more than 30 projects overseas for which your financial help and prayer support are equally sought to help them do much, much more!

CLEFT was established in 2007 by patients, parents, grandparents and surgeons from the North Thames Cleft Centre based at Great Ormond St Hospital for Children and the St Andrew’s Centre, Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford.

Its aims were:

  1. To fund research into the causes and treatment of cleft lip and palate and related conditions
  2. To support cleft teams in several less developed countries

The strap line is “Bridging the Gap”. We aim to help bridge:

  1. The physical gap in the lip and palate – by supporting surgery
  2. The gaps in knowledge – by helping to enable research
  3. The gaps between the care available in the UK and low income countries – by supporting teams in several poorer countries with equipment and training

More information can be found on the CLEFT website – www.cleft.org.uk.

Child Aid

Child Aid was formed in 2000, by a small group of people who accidentally became involved in the problems many rural villages experience in Southern India. It was a story of one person sponsoring a few children from a charity based outside of the UK, on the understanding that he visited those children. Which he did, following that visit, it almost became mandatory to start a similar charity to help, based in the UK. Now Child Aid is a very active charity involved in a wide range of activities in Southern India.

It has funded the education of children in six villages in rural Tamil Nadu, it has built a five classroom primary school. It has changed the lives of three other villages providing toilets in those villages - a luxury no rural village ever had. Then the Tsunami came and Child Aid was on the spot only a few weeks after – a story on it own. It has worked to supporting a children’s home for girls who had no parents and is shortly to build a childrens home of its own from land donated by a supportive Indian businessman.

It is easy to say, but it is true, every sponsorship `penny, ever cent` from individual sponsors goes to helping the child or children sponsored. None of the individual sponsor’s hard earned donation goes to administration. This to date has been down to the Trustees and a number of individual supporters and corporates who like the various projects being undertaken by Child Aid and have supported Child Aid itself.
