A run down looking town

Some might say it's quite a crowded market

There are many charities that are dedicated to ending poverty. Some focus on UK poverty, some focus on child poverty, and some work in the world's poorest countries.

When you donate to a poverty charity it's not simply a case of the money being given to the person or community in need. Organisations like OxfamSave the Children and Christian Aid use donations to fund programmes that help to improve the quality of life for poor people. Donations help to pay for better sanitation, education and access to medical care.

Some of the biggest charities who help people in poverty are Oxfam, Save the Children, Barnados, UNICEF, World Vision, Christian Aid, British Red Cross, CARE International UK and CAFOD.

Tax exempt status of registered charities and online security

All of the charities listed on this website are registered with the Charity Commission in the United Kingdom. Like any business, charities have to submit Tax Returns to HM Revenue and Customs, but all donations are declared and the charities do not have to pay tax on them. This means all your donation to charity will help to further their vision and goals.
