Boast International is very proud to supoport the below Local Charities, Sports Clubs and Youth Centres.
We are also extremely proud to support the following two International Charities:
Save the Children work to make sure children survive, learn and are protected. They change the world for children through innovative programmes, bold campaigns, independent advocacy and high-impact partnerships. They work in the UK and globally.
Save the Children Mission Statement: "To inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives"
Each year we assist the Rotary Club of Felixstowe with arranging Collections (Alongside Santa & Rudolph!) to help this very worth Charity.
Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. Shelterbox are working to change this.
By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, Shelterbox are transforming despair into hope.
What they do:
A new place to call home: family-sized tent that protects people from the elements and provides a safe space to recover from physical and emotional trauma.
Safe water: when disasters devastate the landscape and force families far from home, it can be hard to access safe, clean water. We distribute the most advanced water purification equipment that save lives by reducing risks of water-borne infectious diseases.
Protection from life-threatening diseases: hurricanes and floods are frequently followed by a proliferation of mosquitoes. We distribute the latest version of mosquito nets to give protection from diseases such as malaria, dengue, yellow fever and zika.
Solar lights: to keep families safe in the dark and allow children to finish their homework when it gets dark. They also help reduce gender based violence that too often happens in a post disaster camp scenario.
Warmth: blankets, groundsheets and mattresses provide vital warmth.
