Siloam is satisfied in knowing that the projects it supports overseas comply with all the accounting criteria demanded by the UK Charity Commissioners. Inspections are carried out on a regular basis to overseas projects and fundraising material, gathered to share with sponsors and donors in the UK.

Hope Health Action

Since 2007, HHA has been providing life-saving healthcare to the world’s most vulnerable. Working predominantly in Haiti but also now in South Sudan, we bring transformation to communities where even the most basic healthcare has been unavailable.

Establishing one of the leading hospitals in North Haiti, we specialise in community healthcare, maternity, paediatric, neo-natal care and rehabilitation services for adults and children. We have also been front line responders to several natural disasters such as the 2010 Haiti earthquake and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Working alongside Government institutions and grass root partners alike, we seek to empower a sustainable, inclusive and accessible health service, driven by local vision and staff. We are a Christian charity with a heart of compassion and a desire for justice. We choose to stand in the gap for the innocent and vulnerable as Jesus did, offering health care without any form of regional, religious, or economical discrimination.

Concern Worldwide

A world without hunger. That’s our mission. And it’s well underway, thanks to our sustainable solutions to hunger – and people like you. Today 200 million fewer people are hungry than 25 years ago. But now we need to finish the job.

A gift in your Will could mean that, when the day without hunger arrives, you’ll be there. You’ll provide farmers with training, seeds and tools to grow more. You’ll provide livestock, water pumps, and weather resistant crops to help communities develop resilience to climate change. You’ll help families build livelihoods so they can become self-sufficient. You’ll be there alongside our hunger experts as they continue the work you’ve started.

Let’s commit to finishing the job – child by child, community by community, and country by country. Because we’ve come too far to leave a world without hunger to chance.

For more information on how a gift left to Concern Worldwide will help us end hunger, please call our Gifts in Will team on 028 9026 8019 or email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

ZANE

ZANE – Zimbabwe A National Emergency provides aid and comfort to destitute people in Zimbabwe. The main core of its work 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 2,600 destitute elderly people, including over 620 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 secure a good 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 2,110 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 a number of education projects including paying for school fees, providing food for malnourished school children and supporting a number of community schools.

Some key facts about Zimbabwe today:

  • Zimbabwe is now the second poorest country in the world.
  • Over five million people require urgent food aid.
  • Zimbabwe has no welfare state. Children can only attend school if their parents can pay the school fees. People can only receive medical treatment if they can afford to pay for it.
  • Over 90% of people are unemployed.

ZANE provides aid and relief 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
