Nepal one year on: Rebuilding continues
On 25th April 2015 a devastating earthquake struck Nepal, killing over 8,000 people and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless and in desperate need of aid.
Our teams acted fast and were on the ground delivering urgently needed aid to help people survive the immediate aftermath.
Today, the work continues, and your donations are vital for the rebuilding of lives and livelihoods in Nepal.
You can help the people of Nepal by building a neighbourhood well for just £300.
Call 03000 11 11 11 to build a well in Nepal in your name, or the name of a loved one.

Build a well this World Water Day
Today is World Water Day – an international day dedicated to raising awareness about water issues and taking action to make a difference.
You can be that difference and provide clean water to a community in need by building a well in your name, or that of a loved one. It’s a wonderful way to transform lives for years to come, and we’ll even put a plaque next to the well with your chosen dedication on, and send you a full feedback report.
Call 03000 11 11 11 and give the gift of water today.
Don’t forget to join us over on Facebook and share how you’re marking World Water Day, and tune in to our live appeals on the Big Charity Show, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8pm on Sky 845.

Syria Emergency: 5 years on
In the past five years, around 3.7 million Syrian children have been born. They have never known peace, and some have never even stepped foot inside their home country.
It’s vital that we don’t forget the people of Syria, especially the children.
Penny Appeal teams have been helping Syrians in many ways, most recently in refugee camps in Lebanon. Here, hundreds of thousands of people are living in tents, with limited resources and no access to many basic necessities. We delivered vital items such as food packs, blankets, mattresses and stoves.
We have also provided emergency aid to besieged towns such as Madaya, and delivered hot meals to refugees arriving on the Greek islands.
With tens of thousands of refugees travelling through Europe or held at border crossings without food, clothes, basic hygiene items and shelter, we are exploring further aid delivery options so we can help as many people as possible.
None of this can happen without your support, so thank you, and please continue to donate. Your generosity can make all the difference for a whole generation of Syrians who are at risk of losing everything.
Donate now by calling 03000 11 11 11.

#TeamOrange runners go 13 miles for refugees
A team of 75 runners hit the streets of Coventry on Sunday 28th February to take on a half marathon in aid of refugees.
The #TeamOrange volunteers, including star of The Apprentice Mergim Butaja, raised over £43,944, which will go towards our Refugee Emergency campaign to provide things such as food, clothing and hygiene items for those fleeing conflict.
The #TeamOrange volunteer family also hosted a special Cheer Station at mile 12, giving runners a bit of extra encouragement for the final mile.
Haroon Mota, Midlands Fundraising Manager and #TeamOrange running coach, said: “I’m so proud of everyone! It was a really tough challenge, but every single person gave it their all.”
If you want to do something active to raise funds for people in need then join #TeamOrange for the Walk for Water challenge on 2nd April. We’ll be trekking up Mount Snowdon to build wells in Pakistan.
