SOCIAL INVESTMENT

Our philosophy is to support health and welfare charities where our entrepreneurial mindset focuses on change to provide the greatest impact to local and global communities. We currently support the following charities:

 


Gurkha Welfare Trust

The Gurkha Welfare Trust is a registered charity which was established in 1969. It aims to relieve poverty and distress among Gurkha ex-servicemen of the British Crown and their dependants. This is achieved by raising funds for distribution in Nepal through the Trust’s field arm, the Gurkha Welfare Scheme, and responding to welfare needs as they arise in the UK. The Trust supports around 10,000 welfare pensioners in Nepal. Most are in their 80’s and are totally reliant on the Trust for a dignified and comfortable old age. The Trust helps repay the debt of honour owed the brave Gurkha soldiers who have fought alongside the British & Indian Armies for nearly 200 years.

 

Médecins Sans Frontières

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international humanitarian aid organisation that provides emergency medical assistance to populations affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters and people excluded from healthcare. MSF was founded in 1970 when a group of French doctors joined an international aid mission to help victims of Nigeria’s civil war. They were frustrated by government interference in humanitarian aid and felt they were being silenced when they wanted to tell the world about the atrocities they witnessed. MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999 in recognition of its pioneering humanitarian work.
