Key Initiatives

Food Parcels

In a world of abundance no one should need to go hungry. We help provide families experiencing lack with groceries and household essentials to help them get by.

Winter Heating

When the mediterranean summer draws to an end the surrounding mountains usher in bitter cold and icy winters. We help households keep warm during these months.

Equip and Sustain

Meeting temporary needs is necessary, but facilitating long-lasting change is our desire. We actively seek to invest and partner in projects that have a sustainable ethos.

How We Work

We are passionate about supporting locally run initiatives that can become the solutions to local issues and, therefore, we firmly believe that Local Partners should be involved in everything we do.

Over our years of visiting the country we have developed close friendships with residents that care deeply about the needs of their neighbours and want to do something about it. Our heart is to fuel their ideas and operations with encouragement, support and finance.

Where We Work

Because of our origins, our current focus is predominantly around the North West region of Macedonia in Tetovo, Gostivar and the surrounding villages.  

However, we are now also supporting some projects in the capital city, Skopje, and two communities in the south of the country: Resen and Banica.

As the charity evolves we hope to have further involvement across the country as we are always open to new projects.
