  • Phoenix Team in Cape Town

    The majority of our funding currently goes to the Phoenix Burns Project at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town. In South Africa burn-related injuries are still the third most common cause of death in children under-14 and the most common cause of death in under-2s.

  • Hike and Bike Challenge

    Our most important fund-raising event is the annual Hike & Bike Challenge along the Garden Route to Cape Town, South Africa. The 2017 Challenge raised over £60 000,00 to help children affected by burns and scalds in the region.

We also enjoy the support of a variety of corporations, in particular the established London-headquartered international executive search firm Cripps Sears & Partners, now in its 45th year.
