By making a direct donation you will be making a huge contribution to the treatment of burns and scald victims across Sub-Saharan Africa.
We help to fund a variety of initiatives, but our core focus is the Phoenix Burns Project which is closely linked to the Red Cross Children’s Memorial Hospital in Cape Town. The hospital is the main children’s burns unit for Sub-Saharan Africa and provides the gold standard for care and treatment of burns and scalds.
Phoenix Burns Project provides direct care for children affected by burns and scalds. It also helps to support their families through extremely difficult times. In addition, it runs immensely important education projects, with the aim of reducing the number of burns and scald incidents.
Whether you are an individual or corporate giver, you can rest assured that every donation will be put towards helping the children and their families.
Since its formation Action for Burns & Children has helped raise more than £275,000 to help prevent burns and scalds and to deliver care for those affected. Our aim is to match and better that over the next ten years.
To make a direct donation, please use JustGiving.

GivingWorks and Gift Aid:
GivingWorks is a UK-registered charity that exists to support organisations such as Action for Burns & Children Foundation carry out their charitable projects and be able to benefit from Gift Aid thereby maximising the funds raised for their purpose.
Gift Aid can be applied to donations made through JustGiving to Action for Burns & Children Foundation c/o GivingWorks.
The UK differs from most other countries. The tax benefit goes to the charity not to the donor. The donor will need to provide their name and address, confirming that they are a UK taxpayer and give their permission for the charity to claim Gift Aid.
The charity can then claim Gift Aid of 25% i.e. £25 for every £100 donated
Donations made by individual UK taxpayers benefit from full charitable tax relief provided the project supported is charitable – whether or not the cause is itself a charity, and whether or not it is based in the UK.
