Making a World of Difference

Newsletter Signup

Support for ongoing projects continued unabated in 2016 and into 2017, further establishing the influence that Trade Aid UK has been able to give to important relief programmes worldwide. Much of this has been enabled by the continued sale of Trade Aid UK Granulated and Caster Sugar through Tesco Stores and the sale of ethical travel insurance through its partner www.travelandinsure.com. The use of external aid agencies and charities has been instrumental in us being able to reach the remotest parts of the globe where often the needs are greatest. The individual aid projects supported by the Trade Aid UK Foundation can be viewed by simply scrolling up and down the project panel on this page and clicking on the project that interests you.

Emergency Health Response

Trade Aid UK is supporting Medair in their efforts to increase access to health care in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Conflict in North East DRC has displaced 300,000 people. Many, including victims of sexual violence, need medical care.

Repeated ‘Lord’s Resistance Army’ (LRA) attacks against civilian populations in the north of Province Orientale have forced 300,000 people to flee their homes and land. They are now living precariously in camps or host communities. They have lost their livelihoods, so cannot pay for health care. A few government health centres exist, but the quality of care is poor and the supply of medicines unreliable .

Medair will provide free medical treatment and improve the quality of care in 10 government health centres and do this by training clinic staff and providing good quality medicines.

Medair brings emergency relief and rehabilitation to over two million people a year in some of the most vulnerable countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, all countries that are severely affected by conflicts, natural disasters, or other crises. You can find out more about Medair and the work they are doing by logging onto their website at www.medair.org.
