Children in Crisis
Children in Crisis was established in 1993 in the UK to give children in some of the world's poorest countries the education they need to help transform their lives.
Our vision: All children receive the learning needed for their flourishing and wellbeing
Our mission: Where resources are few, where education is needed to heal the nation, and where it is too remote for others, our aim is to support children to read, write, think, pursue their life goals and contribute positively to their communities.
"We shape approaches which are not too costly but are effective and potentially scalable, not only by us, but by poorly resourced local NGOs and local authorities. We know that the environments we work in are unstable and uncertain, so we ensure that our solutions are resilient, and can be adapted by local communities if things go wrong". Koy Thomson, Chief Executive of Children in Crisis.
British Red Cross
The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.
We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and personal emergencies both overseas and here in the UK.
For many people in crisis throughout the world, the Red Cross could be the only real chance of hope. Often we are the only humanitarian organisation able to reach people when conflict, famine or disaster has destroyed families and communities.
The need for our UK services, as with our international work, continues to grow. In 2014, we helped 74,500 vulnerable people in the UK settle back home after a stay in hospital through our Support at Home service.
A rapid response to crisis really depends on the support of our donors, so regular gifts are essential to the British Red Cross and the people who rely on our help. By making a donation to us via Hands on Payroll Giving, you can help to save lives when disaster strikes. With your support we can continue to be there, bringing help and hope to people across the world and here in the UK.
