Elderly

ZANE

ZANE: Zimbabwe A National Emergency provides aid and comfort to destitute people in Zimbabwe. Its main focus is supporting elderly people; those who lost their pensions and savings when the Zimbabwean economy collapsed and are now entirely dependent on charity to survive.

ZANE provides aid to around 1,800 destitute elderly people, including over 600 war veterans and their widows. It assists with rent, medical bills and food. However, there is also a desperate need to support children and young people, particularly in helping them gain an education so one day when the situation in Zimbabwe improves, they will be able to work and help re-build the country.

ZANE funds a clubfoot correction programme and to-date has treated over 2,600 children – enabling them to walk and live a life free from disability. ZANE also runs creative therapy projects to help women and their families who have been victims of political violence, abuse, and extreme poverty. ZANE also funds education projects including pop-up classrooms in high density townships.

ZANE provides aid, comfort and support to the most destitute people in Zimbabwe. It receives no statutory funding and relies entirely on voluntary donations. More information is available at www.zane.uk.com

Alzheimer's Research UK

We are the UK’s leading research charity aiming to defeat dementia. We power world class studies that give us the best chance of beating dementia.

Dementia affects 850,000 people in the UK. 24 million of the UK population have a close friend or family member with dementia. As well as the huge personal cost, dementia costs the UK economy £24 billion a year, more than cancer and heart disease combined. Despite these figures, dementia research is desperately underfunded.

Our pioneering work focuses on prevention, treatment and cure. We rely on gifts from the public to help us fund the best possible research. Currently, gifts in Wills fund approximately 1 in 3 of our vital research projects, moving us closer to a world free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.

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.
