Your fundraising could make all the difference...

Penny Appeal always strives to respond to global disasters and emergencies as they happen, but more importantly, we are always working to grow our capacity. This means delivering aid quicker, better and towards a more sustainable impact, benefitting more people than ever before. 

The funds you raise are absolutely critical in our ability to act fast during a crisis.

War, famine, disease, poverty & climate change have immobilised communities in Myanmar, Syria, Yemen, Gaza, Indonesia and East Africa, and Penny Appeal need your support to be able to deploy life-saving medical aid, food, clothing, sanitation and shelter to those who've been left incredibly vulnerable.

Our teams are currently providing support in:

  • Syria and neighbouring countries - where refugees are battling to survive
  • Yeme- where civilians are targeted amidst conflict, faced with famine and struggling to receive medical treatment for Cholera
  • Myanma- where Rohingya communities are being persecuted
  • Palestin- where people are living amid conflict
  • Banglades- Helping victims of the Sunamganj Floods and providing essential aid to Rohingya refugees
  • Areas affected by the famine East Africa, such as Somalia, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Kenya 

We're asking you to raise just a minimum of £100, but we’re hoping you will do even more. It's a challenge so it's a great opportunity to push yourself. How many livewill you save?
