The IAPC&M Chosen Charities
Doctors of the World
An International Human Rights Organization
Doctors of the World serves more than 1.6 million people every year, through 400 programs in over 80 countries around the world. We are there in conflict zones, refugee camps and rural communities, providing care, creating infrastructure and advocating for the world’s most vulnerable people.
Whether that means defying local authorities to create a life-saving needle exchange program for drug users in France, fighting for women’s reproductive rights in Nepal or providing psychological and medical care for Syrian refugees in Turkey, we fight every day to save the lives of people living on the margins.
What is lendwithcare?
Lendwithcare.org is an innovative way to help people in developing countries transform their futures.
Set up by one of the world’s leading aid and development organisations, lendwithcare.org enables people to lend small sums of money directly to entrepreneurs in developing countries to help them start or grow their small businesses.
At CARE International UK we are dedicated to helping poor people transform their own lives – with dignity. And we believe providing fair and affordable financial services is a crucial way to achieve this.
Microfinance can help the poorest earn a living, grow their businesses and create new jobs, pulling whole communities out of poverty.
Nonhuman Rights Project
A Unique and Vital Mission
The Nonhuman Rights Project is the only civil rights organization in the United States dedicated solely to securing rights for nonhuman animals.
Our groundbreaking work challenges an archaic, unjust legal status quo that views and treats all nonhuman animals as “things” with no rights. As with human rights, nonhuman rights are based on fundamental values and principles of justice such as liberty, autonomy, equality, and fairness. All of human history shows that the only way to truly protect human beings’ fundamental interests is to recognize their rights. It’s no different for nonhuman animals.
A Vision for a Wilder Future
We’ve partnered with charities, organisations and local communities to create a wilder future for Ingleborough. Together we can restore nature, give wildlife a hoe and help tackle the climate crisis.
WWF (World Wildlife Fund) is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. Our mission is to create a world where people and wildlife can thrive together.
To achieve our mission, we’re finding ways to help transform the future for the world’s wildlife, rivers, forests and seas; pushing for a reduction in carbon emissions that will avoid catastrophic climate change; and pressing for measures to help people live sustainably, within the means of our one planet.
The Ocean Cleanup
Over 5 Trillion Pieces of Plastic Currently Litter The Ocean
Trash accumulates in five ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. To solve it, we not only need to stop more plastic from flowing into the ocean but also clean up what is already out there.
Floating plastics trapped in the patches will keep circulating until they break down into smaller and smaller pieces, becoming harder to clean up and increasingly easier to mistake for food by sealife. If left to circulate, plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies for decades or even centuries. Visit The Ocean Project to find out more.
