Making it easy for
people to
Do More Good.


Creating caring communities where everyone thrives.


We connect people who care to causes that matter. We do this by making it easy for fundholders to give or invest money and for charities to receive money.

Providing Healthcare and Dignity to Refugee Newcomers

For many newcomers in our community, seeking medical treatment isn’t easy especially if they have arrived as refugees. Their traumatic experiences in getting here have put them all at risk, and in need of some form of medical care, if only assessment. Some have pre-existing conditions that have gone untreated, e.g. diabetes or nutritional deficiencies and recurring bouts of malaria; a large number require mental health and trauma counselling.
