Charities are a big part of my life. At a local level I like to support Christian youth work and charities which help people and families affected by disability. At an international level I like to support charities and projects which help children born into poverty or children for whom life is a struggle. There are so many good charities I find it impossible to limit my support to just one or two. I know the people who run the charities and projects I support so I know the money will be put to good use.

I will be supporting Stand by Me's work in Shan State, Burma.
Thank you for your support, Peter Hagenbuch
Stand by Me rescue children then do whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. Shan State lies in the west of Burma. It is troubled by war, conflict, persecution, poverty and the trafficking of children. Stand by Me is meeting the needs of orphaned and abandoned children in our two family-style children's homes. The children receive a great education and get the chance to reach their full potential. The children's village has recently purchased new land adjoining the village and donations to Peter's fundraising will help to renovate the land to be used as a play area for children and for outreach projects to the local community.
