Story

How often do you see the adverts on TV for the charities working at home and abroad and skipped past them or rolled your eyes thinking if I gave you £10 a month etc how much of that would get to the cause. That is what Clare Tewson thought each month as she sponsored a child in Uganda. The only way she could find out for sure was to become a trustee of the charity and dig deeper in to where the funds were going.

It shocked Clare to see that her donation was not being spent as it should and that too much of this was going to admin and other costs so the sponsored child was not benefitting as they should have. Clare decided that is was not good enough and wanted all of her sponsorship to go to the child she sponsored so over the COVID lockdown in 2020 Clare and her children spent their time in confinement researching and setting up a charity of their own that would ensure all the funds provided by the sponsors went to aid the child and their family this was the start of Forever Foundation UK.

In less than two years, Clare and her team have touched the lives of hundreds, they have fed more than 100 families equating to over 500 people.

The charity have built and rehabilitated more than ten houses and provided mattresses, water proof coverings and mosquito nets to more than 100 children who’s sleeping conditions were appalling. As well as clothes and shoes for the sponsored children and their families.

The provision of sanitary water was a huge achievement for the Forever Foundation. This was to ensure that a whole village whose water source was dirty and contaminated from ponds, are now getting clean and safe water from a bore hole without travelling long distances. The Forever Foundation would like to repeat this process and provide another bore hole to help more families.

All of this information can be found on the website for the Charity https://foreverfoundationuk.org/ along with lots more information about who they are and what they do.

Now for our part, we at the International Logistics Centre family are looking to help the Forever Foundation to raise funds for an additional bore hole, continue with the building of an orphanage and sending over much needed supplies of medical equipment, beds and school supplies. We are also sending over beloved MD Andrew Morris for 2 weeks in September to help Clare to check up on the sponsored families as well as distribute supplies and offer some manual labour assistance.

Whilst the team are in the area they are holding 2 health clinic days, these health clinics are intended for anyone in the area, they do not have to be from a sponsored family to receiving medical treatment and support. These clinics cost the foundation £1200 a day to run but provide a tremendous amount of help and support for hundreds of families in need
