Medical care for the pupils will be beneficial as early visits to a Doctor could solve illnesses quickly with medication. It will enable them to continue their education without being ill at home. Education is vital in enabling these young children to progress through their education and give them a chance to get out of the poverty in which they are living. Some illnesses such as Malaria and Dengue Fever can be treated quickly with the right medical care. It can also save lives.


Although we have a Doctor near Unity School to support the pupils, we want to raise awareness of the vital need for ongoing medical care. Schools in West Sussex and Eindhoven that have supported us have not been able to fundraise because of Covid, but by applying for the BigGive and spreading the word to schools, we believe this is a long term vision to enlist the support from more schools.

  • I am an orphan, and with your help I went on to University and graduated with a degree of Batchelor of Criminology. I want to help and encourage other students at Unity School and give something back to society. You showed me that even with a very poor background I could excel. Thank you so much

  • Unity School is an educational institution in a very poor area. I wish to thank the charity for all they do in supporting medical care and medicine when funds allow. It is such a big boost to the overall health of the children. We at the centre are proud to be able to support the charity.
