Helen Bamber Foundation receives £500,000 from People’s Postcode Equality Trust to support work with survivors of torture and human trafficking
The Helen Bamber Foundation was honoured to attend the 2018 People’s Postcode Lottery annual Gala on 23 January 2017 where the charity’s President, Emma Thompson, accepted a £500,000 award on behalf of the Helen Bamber Foundation– thanks to the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.
The Helen Bamber Foundation is a London based charity that supports asylum seekers and refugees who have experienced extreme human cruelty, such as torture and human trafficking. The charity provides more than 840 survivors with lifesaving therapy, legal protection, medical advisory services, as well as safeguarding and integration support each year. The award from the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery will ensure that survivors are able to rebuild their lives following atrocity. Thank you.
Actress and President of the Helen Bamber Foundation says “Never have I felt more excited by the support of an organisation. The Postcode Lottery offer financial help, yes, but even more than that, they give extraordinary moral support!”
