Dr Janet Dacie's web page
I set up this web page in October 2017 specifically to meet the cost of urgent and ongoing medical needs of the 3,600 children cared for by Stand by Me.
Stand by Me
Founded in 1995, Stand by Me rescues children from extreme circumstances, then does whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention the kids need to thrive. Working in seven of the world’s poorest countries, from Nepal to Colombia to Ethiopia, Stand by Me takes care to understand and meet the children's individual needs, from food and healthcare, to loving parents and quality education. They help them reach their potential and change their futures. Since the start Stand by Me has changed over 10,000 lives: just two examples are a street child called Wilton who has qualified as a surgeon and is now practicing locally in the Dominican Republic, another is Isha, whom I met in 2017, who is now a midwife in Nepal.
My journey with Stand by Me started in 2006 when, with my future husband, I heard David Spurdle (the founder) speak about the charities work in Myanmar (Burma). Updates about the progress of the charity, the projects and most importantly the children, increased my personal involvement. My association with the charity continues to give me fulfillment and joy. Please help this amazing charity if you can. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated and can be made on this page, please tick the gift-aid box if you are able. Other ways of helping include sponsoring a child. Without our help these needy children and their families will remain in the dire circumstances into which they were born. We can’t let that happen. We really can make a difference! We can change lives!
Thank you so much
