School fundraising

ELoH’s work is inspired by the bravery of Pollyanna Hope, who lost her leg, aged just two years old in a terrible bus accident in London. Today, after receiving expert medical care and support, Pollyanna can walk, play and go to school, just like her friends. However, thousands of amputees in less developed countries do not receive the help or support they need, and desperately lack access to good quality medical assistance and education.

Our mission is to help these vulnerable children so they can lead happy and healthy lives – and to spread the word to other children in the UK, to encourage them to help others who are less fortunate than themselves.

We collaborate with a range of UK schools to organise child-friendly events to raise awareness, and sometimes a bit of money too, to support our work. This has been an eye-opening experience for the children we have worked with so far, who have learnt about the difficulties associated with amputation, as well as the challenges facing children in other less developed parts of the world.
