Please join me to provide ongoing support for the healthcare needs of these disadvantaged children and their immediate carers.

When I first became involved with Stand by Me over 10 years ago I was struck by the lack of adequate healthcare provision for the children as there was no free health care in many of the poor countries they work in. Ever since I have been contributing to this need and I’m asking you support children like Sena (in the video above) to allow them to rise above their circumstances and reach their full potential.

Below are some examples of what your donation can achieve. On the right of this page allows you to set up a regular gift or make a one off donation towards the healthcare needs of these amazing children and I want to thank you in advance for your generosity.

£20 can pay for an eye test for a child and a pair of glasses

£50 can pay a nurse’s salary for a month in Burma

£100 can pay for 12 children to receive dental checks which will make sure our children have healthy mouths, teeth, gums and a bright smile

£450 is the monthly cost of soap, toothpaste, sanitarytowels and other hygiene items for the 1,000 children in Ethiopia

£1,000 pays for a month’s medical costs for children and primary care-givers in Bekoji, Ethiopia. This includes medication, operations, travel to hospitals and appointments with consultants.

Your support can really make a difference; I’ve seen it with my own eyes and can tell you it really does change lives.

Thank you so much.
