Read how two of our supporters are fundraising

Trish and Gerry Kerr, who have been child sponsors with ActionAid for almost 30 years recently visited the child that they currently sponsor in Nepal, at their own expense.

They were so moved by the work that they saw on the ground and the impact of their donation that they decided to fundraise for two projects in the community.
