What We Do

Direct Aid

In Africa there are many immediate needs and tragedies. There are daily examples of people with nowhere to go, no shoes on their feet, no clothes, not knowing where the next meal will come from. There are many people who are destitute living in unimaginable conditions. ICROSS has a very small discretional budget and we are able to give sandals, clothes and food, basic emergency help to those who need our help in immediate and practical ways.

There are so many people in need of direct and real help now that we consider this an important part of our flexibility in responding to humanity at its most desperate moment. This activity is not part of programme strategic interventions or funded by specific project resources. The only way we can help these destitute people is to receive individual donations from friends and members of the public specifically to help those who have fallen through the net and have nowhere to go.
