VVUK is a charity dedicated to helping those in desperate need. The reasons for their suffering could be due to conflict or natural disaster, either way we offer them an element of hope and positivity.

They turn to Organisations such as VVUK for care when there is no one else. We adhere to a 100% donations policy , ensuring every penny you have donated reaches the poor and most needy . We work hard to get our projects off the ground as quickly as possible. Recent projects have involved helping those who have been affected by natural disasters, such as the covid pandemic in India , Fire at the welfare Hospital Bharuch. We provided temporary shelter and food packs to help those who had lost everything, Emergency medical assistance. We also work on longer-term projects to help give people a future. This includes building education centres and providing educational materials to help give those in need a chance at a better life. We believe education is a vital tool to help empower those in need and ensure they can take control of their own lives. As a charity we understand the impact that loosing relatives and loved ones can have, which is why we set up widow sponsorships. These aim to offer counselling and comfort to those who need it, allowing them to start to see past the pain and focus on the future. Our projects vary depending on different crises that happen but overall we aim to deliver a mixture of short immediate relief, as well as long term projects that can continue to help people over a longer period of time. All our projects carry the same level of importance with the focus being to help as many of those in need as we can.
