Making a World of Difference

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.

Nepal Earthquake Disaster

Within hours of the massive earthquake in Nepal, Trade Aid UK was helping to fund emergency relief through the Charity Medair. The immediate needs were health followed quickly by providing shelter. Medair, working closely with Mission East, identified the remote mountainous area of Sindhupalchowk, north of Kathmandu, as badly affected by the earthquake with villages there in greatest need.

Providing shelter is likely to be a long term project whilst, in the short term, the delivery of emergency health kits will provide some health care capacity in the zone. The supply of essential household and shelter relief items to 11,000 families, as well as emergency health kits to the region  are expected to help 30,000 people in the coming months.

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. Medair responds to natural disasters, conflicts that uproot communities and crises, such as drought or disease. You can find out more about Medair and the work they are doing by logging onto their website at www.medair.org.
