Season’s Greetings! Each year, the Campbell Tickell team nominate several charities to give to in place of sending Christmas cards by post.
This year we’re pleased to be able to support the brilliant work of: Mind, Syria Crisis – Care International and Save the Children.
Read more about them below.
Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. We empower people to understand their condition and the choices available to them through the following:
- Their Infoline, which offers callers confidential help for the price of a local call.
- Mind’ s Legal Line, which provides information on mental health related law to the public, service users, family members/carers, mental health professionals and mental health advocates.
- Publications and website, now certified by the Information Standard.
CT is really pleased to be able to add our donation to the fundraising target being run by the CIH presidential campaign for Mind
2. Care International – Syria Crisis
What started in 2011 as peaceful protests inspired by the Arab Spring has turned into the world’s largest refugee and displaced person crisis, described by the UN as ‘the biggest humanitarian emergency of our era’.
More than 13 million people inside Syria itself are in dire need of life-saving aid while over four million have fled the country to seek safety in the region.
CARE supports their Syrian partner organisation, Violet, to provide vital services at the Hope Maternity Hospital in Idlib. Located in the South of Idlib, this hospital is one of the few maternal and paediatric facilities that remain fully operational and one of the few places where people can receive medical aid. It provides life-saving interventions and it is a glimmer of hope for the people of Idlib. A few months ago, the hospital suffered from lack of funds, but the doctors and nurses continued their work. CARE managed to secure some funding so that staff can receive their salary for their valuable services and to make sure that the hospital will remain open in the coming months.
3. Save the Children
Save the Children work alongside children in more than 100 countries, including the UK. help children stay safe, healthy and learning. We lead the way on tackling big problems like pneumonia, hunger and protecting children in war, while ensuring each child’s unique needs are cared for.
Together, with Save the Children members around the world, the charity has three big goals.
Their shared ambition is that by 2030, no child dies from preventable causes before their fifth birthday, all children learn from a quality basic education, and violence against children is no longer tolerated.
