About the charities we support

Snowdrop Project

 

"Snowdrop Project is a charity based in Sheffield, which provides long-term, community support to empower survivors of human trafficking. We work with our clients on an individual basis to ensure their needs, which are often complex, are met.

What is trafficking?

 

Each year men, women and children from all over the world are tricked into believing that they have the opportunity to start a new life. They leave their home, family and friends hoping to escape hardship, discrimination or persecution in their own country, find a new job or pursue a new relationship. However, once they reach their destination their dreams quickly change to a nightmare as they are sold as a commodity into a life of servitude and abuse.The UN Palermo Protocols 2000 defines trafficking as such:“Trafficking in persons shall mean (the acts of) recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat, or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or a postion of vulnerability, or the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation" (Snowdrop Project, 2017).

The Children's Hospital Charity

 

"The Children's Hospital Charity's role is to provide over and above the standard NHS provision, enhancing Sheffield Children's Hospital and matching the world-class equipment with existing world-class expertise.

 

Children come from all over the country to see our hospital’s specialists and we work hard to make it better by funding things which the NHS does not cover. The money raised through donations buys life-saving equipment, funds vital research and treatment for thousands of children from across the world and helps us create a comfortable, engaging environment for our patients.

 

Patients and their families are at the centre of everything we do. They deserve to be treated with the best facilities in a hospital designed with children in mind.

 

Visiting the hospital can be daunting – we need to make the clinical more comfortable creating a space to play, feel at home and make the clinical more comfortable.

We want to make our hospital feel better, by brightening our hospital walls to make children smile.

We want to provide specialist equipment to ensure our children have the best possible care"
