The charities we support are local as well as international. Where possible we try to support those that do not generally get wide public support. It is the smaller charities that continually struggle for funding despite the great work they are doing.

 

The trustees meet regularly to agree the account income and expenditure. No salaries are paid to staff but of course we have the everyday expenses of rent, utilities, insurance, taxes, licences and legal fees, IVA and taxes, property maintenance etc.
When all these are taken into account, we agree what surplus money is available for distribution that month. We keep an emergency fund for when a charitable need is urgent and the balance goes to local, national and international charities.
We are extremely grateful to MSB – Multi Service Bureau on La Manga Club who handle all our accounts, IVA and Tax payments without charge!

 

Our main support has been to THE KENYA FUND - This is a small charitable work run by Bob and Mary Barham (Trustees). They have lived and worked in Kenya over previous years, supporting charities.

Now through THE KENYA FUND support orphans, street children and vulnerable children in families. This work in Kenya is carried out through a local qualified social worker. Rather than use an orphanage we try to keep children with their families, pay for residential and local education and all the related costs. More details are available on request

We have developed a great link with Buen Samaritano Cartagena. They support the homeless, needy and refugees in Cartagena and wider Murcia. Nothing is wasted as they will take all our surplus and unsold donations.

We also have links for donating surplus clothes to churches in Los Alcazares working with the "field workers" living in extremely poor conditions.
