Welcome to the Catriona Hargreaves Charitable Trust—a different kind of charity


We are a grass-roots group of unpaid volunteers working to transform the lives of deprived people all over the world where disease and poverty meet. CHCT reaches communities in the roughest slums and remotest villages ignored by the mainstream international aid agencies

What Do We Do

Food, shelter, medical treatment and health education in the most vulnerable communities are our special concern. All projects are strictly monitored by our Trustees, with regular reports and photographs.

What We Don’t Do

CHCT has never paid people to market in the street, we never pester anyone with junk mail or cold calls and we never take a salary. Every penny received goes to those who need it most. If that’s how you think charities ought to be, click on the links in the menu to find out more.
