2020 – What We Achieved

Since registration in 1998, CHCT has made over a hundred cash grants towards life-changing projects, currently running at around £20,000 a year. Typical of these are:

  • TB hospitals in Vietnam, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Argentina and India—Food rations for patients to ensure they stay to finish their treatment and cease to be a risk to others.
  • Rural India—A mobile clinic in remote mountain areas to detect and treat TB
  • Tongole Foundation, Malawi—Self-help feeding project for four schools provided with seeds, tools and cooking utensils.
  • Hospitals in Benin and Togo—Surgical instruments, skin grafting equipment, operating theatre lights, industrial washing machines.
  • Msutituni, Kenya—The Heart of Kenya project backed by Goudhurst Catholic church in Kent supports a community of AIDS orphans with food.
  • Sightsavers—This charity works to preserve sight in places blindness can result from easily treated infections. We also funded Orbis for a flying doctor performing eye treatment.
  • Syrian orphans—Refugee children on the outskirts of Aleppo are provided with food, clothing and medical treatment before they are re-homed.
  • Mustard Seed, Kenya—Health clinic for a new school, which has also been provided a borehole for clean water.
  • Cambodian villages—We have funded a number of wells to be dug in communities where there was no access to fresh water.
  • Hands Around The World—Funding to feed HIV orphans in Zambia which can be done for just £1 a month for each child.
