The ALBORADA trustees take an active and personal interest in the plight of refugees – a worldwide problem that is steadily getting worse. There are close to a million in one camp alone (the Rohingya at Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, who have flown from brutal persecution in Myanmar). Elsewhere, communities are fleeing gang violence in central America, people are arbitrarily detained in appalling conditions in Libya and, in the vast desert of northern Mali, insecurity, isolation and limited health infrastructure means that many thousands of children cannot access healthcare. And this is not to mention Haiti, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan, Gaza, Uzbekistan, Belarus, South Africa, Yemen and the Congo to name just a few. The trust has supported MSF for many years since 2010 and continues to provide help in a sum of over €400,000 a year.
One of the world’s best run and most remarkable charities, MSF continues its amazing work in over 60 countries worldwide.
In support of this, The Alborada Trust has increased its grants. In 2016 it made a donation of €200,000 to help MSF on their work with the Noma virus and in 2017 it agreed to provide support for the MSF refugee camps in Beirut, Sudan and Syria with a commitment of €100,000 annually for the next three years to each of those three.
“MSF is incredibly grateful to The ALBORADA Trust for their continued support to the Nap Kenbe Hospital which has helped us to treat a huge number of patients each month. In addition to a grant towards our work in Nigeria, the ALBORADA Trust has agreed substantial grants towards the cost of our refugee camps in Beirut and Sudan through to 2020 at a cost of over half a million pounds.”
