We are a UK international development organisation and we work to ensure vulnerable children get the best start in life.
In Russia, Central Asia and Eastern Europe, where approximately two young children every hour are separated from their parents and placed in baby homes, we support the development of community-based services so that parents are more able to keep their child at home and offer them the nurturing environment they need.
In Afghanistan, where maternal, infant and child mortality is one of the highest in the world, we train healthcare staff and support parents in remote regions to access emergency transport and life-saving knowledge so that women can give birth safely.
Cello Recital in Memory of Mstislav Rostropovich
Join us at the private Kensington residence of Sir Vernon Ellis, Chairman of the British Council and President of English National Opera on 4th December 2013 for a cello recital in memory of Mstislav Rostropovich.
Performances by Tim Lowe (cello) and James Baillieu (piano). Limited availability, book now.
We are working to ensure mothers and their children survive childbirth in remote parts of Afghanistan through the development of our special donkey saddle. This provides greater comfort and helps protect both the mother and unborn child on the journey from the villages to the health centre.
Our Donkey Ambulance is an exciting innovation which has attracted worldwide media attention. We now need your support to help develop and deliver the Donkey Ambulance. Sponsor one today.
