CHARITY PROJECTS

Because I feel I have been very fortunate in life by having good health, education, supportive family and access to opportunities, I am always looking for ways to give back and help offer the same to others. Therefore, charity and awareness projects are very important to me. Here are some of the main ones I support and have worked with. If there is ever any way in which I can be of benefit to a charity you work with, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

   
 

FAIRTRADE
I believe everyone should have the right to be able to work to achieve, provide for their families, feed their children, invest in their countries and environment and work their way out of debt and poverty by receiving a fair reward for their hard work and the dignity to be able to hold their heads high.

NSPCC
I don't think there is anything more important or as great a responsibility for a human being as ensuring the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of a child. It is as simple as that. Where children have been damaged through the actions of parents or carers, it falls upon us to help mend the wounds of the future generation.

RAILWAY CHILDREN
The movie Slumdog Millionaire has helped to raise awareness of the plight of street children. There are children all over the world in situations similar to that in the film, but unlike Jamal, many unfortunately do not have a happy ending. We can help support those who work tirelessly to prevent these children being picked up and exploited at railways stations across the globe.

TIME TO CHANGE
Those that suffer from some form of mental impairment - from learning disabilities to depression, are often hindered more by the stigma and lack of understanding they face in society every day than the condition itself.
This fear and prejudice is present across all societies and communities including, unfortunately, the Asian community which is sadly rife with denial that mental illness even exists.

WHATEVER IT TAKES
This is wonderful umbrella movement which sells bespoke items each designed with a message of hope and an illustration by contributors from diverse fields ranging from chefs to movie stars to royalty. The aim is to raise a minimum of $3 million over 3 years to fund charitable projects in developing countries including protection of the environment and children.

PWSA
Prader-Willi syndrome is a complex genetic disorder, which is present from birth. Its main characteristics are: excessive appetite, low muscle tone, emotional instability, immature physical development, learning disabilities (sometimes very mild). Greater awareness and understanding of the subtleties of this condition would greatly help those with PSW lead much more integrated lives in the wider community.

SIGHTSAVERS INTERNATIONAL
We often take it for granted but where would we be without our sight? This resonated with me as I work so visually on everything I do. This international organisation works with partners in developing countries to eliminate avoidable blindness and promote equality of opportunity for disabled people.

KEW GARDENS
I am always interested in raising awareness of the global links between us in society, culture and history. So I was delighted to be involved with a venture at Kew Gardens which explores the British cultural relevance of South Asian plants including herbs and spices.

FRANK WATER
I find it beyond shocking that it is easier to get WiFi than safe, clean drinking water, so every drop of support counts to help everyone have this basic necessity. Through bottled water, refillable bottles, water coolers, and freefill at festivals, Frank Water’s 100% of profits fund safe drinking water for the communities that need it the most.
