“I am thrilled with what Child Rescue Nepal have been able to achieve”
Lady Edwina Grosvenor
“This Charity is very dear to my heart and I have been involved with it from the very first children that walked through their doors. Nepal is a beautiful country that faces many challenges both manmade and natural which this organisation responds to creatively and efficiently. It is hugely deserving of all the support it can get.”
“The Esther Benjamins Trust, the pioneering organisation, is playing an enormous role to save the lives of Nepalese children who have been trafficked or displaced into India.”

Voice of Children
VOC is a well-established Nepal charity which was honoured in 2015 for its achievements by Comic Relief. We are working with VOC on rescuing street children some of whom were made homeless as a result of the earthquake. In our future rescues VOC will offer fostering as an option for children who are unable to return home.
“Namaste has been supporting Child Rescue Nepal, for more than 10 years. We have sponsored two children for the last 10 years and recently have provided the financial support for an Education Officer who works with schools to prevent the trafficking of children. We regularly donate and raise money for the trust and help to spread awareness of the excellent work they do and how others can help. It is an inspirational story and a really worthwhile cause to support.”
Rachel Brummitt, Namaste
Sanne Philanthropic Foundation
“Since we began our support in 2008, the charity has had to adapt and respond to events, challenges and pressures without ever losing its focus on those children most vulnerable to or victims of trafficking. It has rescued children but has also cared for them well into the future, working to reintegrate them into their communities. As donors, we have been kept well-informed about plans and progress so that we feel like engaged partners. We are proud to support this energetic and committed organisation.”
Gillian Arthur, Director, Sanne Philanthropic Foundation.
“Our family trusts have been delighted to provide core funding to The Trust because it rescues trafficked children – reintegrating them with their families where possible. It is also important that it works to prevent the problem at its root through improved education and pursuit of the perpetrators the traffickers themselves”.
Gill and Garf Collins
“As a Hatemalo Board member I had the great chance to meet the kids and staff in Nepal. I experienced the great work the trust is doing to prevent child-trafficking and the care they provide for the unluckily trafficked children. They need very special care after they experienced these difficulties and Child Rescue Nepal provides this to them. I have seen successful reunifications with families, which was a wonderful moment for me as well as for them”.
Berna Kaiser, Hatemalo, Germany
“I commend the work of Child Rescue Nepal in trying to keep Nepali children safe in school, where they are less likely to be trafficked.”
The Lord Ramsbotham GCB CBE
“This is a charity that I have supported and fundraised for over a few years. Keeping children safe and then returning them to their families is more than just something urgently needed – it is a basic right for every child.”
Sir Richard Stilgoe
“I have been to Nepal and seen first hand the work of CRN. It is impressive, moving and focussed – and extremely life-changing for the children who are rescued.”
The Rt Hon Sir John Major KG CH
“I wish you every continued success in the important work you are undertaking to alleviate the suffering of some of the most vulnerable members of our global society.”
The John and Wendy Osorio Trust has been supporting and funding Child Rescue Nepal for more than eight years, and will continue to do so, because the trust believes CRN’s achievements are “considerable and impressive”.
