Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children
A childhood cancer diagnosis devastates and affects every part of family life. The NI Cancer Fund for Children provides practical, emotional and financial support to the entire family when a child has been diagnosed with cancer. The family will be very distressed as they cope with constant tests, surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy so the NICFC supports the child, siblings, mums and dads separately and as a family unit so they can better support each other through this traumatic time.
Qualified youth workers and trained family workers support children and parents. Financial grants help families pay for traveling to hospital, home heating and travelling outside NI for essential treatment. Families get a chance to be a family again at Shimna Valley holiday house (Newcastle), where all cooking and cleaning is provided – they meet other families dealing with similar experiences. Families leave Shimna Valley refreshed, nourished and robust. They return to their homes, schools, communities and places of work re-energised and better able to cope with the next hurdle on their very own cancer journey. For those families needing a private break a self catering cottage is provided by an idyllic river bank in Coleraine. A Bereavement Support Service is also available for those families who have lost a child.
In 2008 the charity began supporting children who have a parent diagnosed with cancer. The ‘Young Shoulders’ programme supports children and young people who are living every day with the fears and anxieties associated with having a mum or dad diagnosed with cancer.

Railway Children’s primary aim as an organisation is to change the lives of children living on the streets. Currently working in East Africa, India and here in the UK we contacted over 25,000 children last year. In India we reunited 4215 of those 15,697 children contacted, with their families.
We undertake change at three levels:
Firstly, our work involves meeting the immediate needs of the child. This is where we are working directly with the child at grass roots level.
Secondly, we have to create change in the local context. This means sensitising the local community where we work. It is crucial that the children who live or arrive on the streets are not seen by society as a commodity to sell, or abuse – but as children, children in need of care and protection.
Thirdly, we work tirelessly to influence key policy decision makers in government to create safeguarding provisions within their policies and budgets for street children. This is extremely time consuming but vital if we are to achieve long term, sustainable change. Railway Children

Wherever we work there is one factor that unites farmers across Africa – Poverty. Most of the 80 million smallholder farmers in Africa live on less than $2 a day. Unable to invest in their farms, they are condemned to a cycle of poor harvest and low incomes.
With over 25 years experience we can provide access to quality seed, livestock, saving & credit associations. Our projects use a ‘pass on’ basis, so that each farmer supplied with seed, livestock or credit pays back the loan with interest to allow more famers to receive support at no extra cost. This provides a sustainable way of allowing people in rural Africa work their way out of hunger & poverty. Self Help Africa
