Donate to VLM
With thanks to the support of all of our donors, VLM is able to carry out its work to a high standard. Our main activity as an organisation is to support our African partners, the Daughters of Charity, Vincentian Fathers and their project staff. They are making a difference to the lives of those experiencing poverty in the world’s most difficult contexts today.
VLM is mainly run by volunteers and has very low operational and administrative costs. As a not-for-profit organisation we greatly appreciate on-going contributions and donations from our volunteers, friends and supporters.
Your donations allow us to plan for the future and continue giving people an opportunity to volunteer in Africa, in turn, making a difference to those in need.
If you wish to contribute to VLM, there are many ways you can do so:
