The chance to share Hema’s story and bring the realities of caring in lower income countries to a new audience is big opportunity for a small charity like ours. We are excited to tell as many people as we can about our work and to raise as many funds as possible. You can donate through the BBC Radio 4 Appeal page when our appeal goes live on the 7th November until the 13th November, or directly anytime using the form at the bottom of this page.
We are thrilled to have Jackie Ashley present our appeal for us. Jackie has first hand experience of how being a carer affects life in so many ways. Her husband, fellow journalist Andrew Marr, suffered a life-changing stroke in 2013, and during his recovery Jackie became his full time carer – so our work is close to her heart.
