Compassion Direct UK – CDUK, believe that 'Earth is the Home that we Share'.
We are an environmentally aware charity, giving direct practical help to children & families living & working in streets, shanties, refugee camps & remote rural schools.
Our projects assist people to help them selves & work towards becoming independent with dignity & respect.
CDUK trustees believe that the world is interdependent & that our lives are interrelated, we try to reflect this in our literature & our ethos.
On a local level we encourage our local volunteer groups to fund raise using recycled materials, such as jumble, second hand book sales, auctions, bring & buy sales etc.
We are a small organisation of professional volunteers whose work often goes under the radar & reaches parts other don't reach. We are able & sometimes achieve small things that make a massive difference to peoples lives.
