Dame Evelyn Glennie Launches BBC Radio 4 Appeal
AbleChildAfrica is delighted to have Patron, Dame Evelyn Glennie host our BBC Radio 4 Charity Appeal to raise awareness for disabled children in Africa.
Despite significant progress in recent years, disability still struggles to receive widespread attention in international development arenas. We know the need is great: 15% of the world’s population is living with a disability; there are approximately 300 million disabled children in the world, 80% of whom live in developing countries. We also know commitment by donors is proportionately very low; less than 1% of all international aid funding is directed to projects addressing disability.

Every pound you donate goes towards vital work to give disabled children in Africa the best start to life possible.
Thank you in advance. With three decades of experience, we understand the needs of disabled children, but our success is only made possible by the kind donations we receive from our supporters.
