CHASE Africa’s name stands for Community Health And Sustainable Environment and comes from our understanding that a healthy community is dependent on a sustainable environment. Enabling women to choose the number and spacing of their children and helping communities to create a robust environment gives people a chance to leave poverty behind.

Donate to CHASE Africa

A little can go a long way

£7.50 in coinsJust £7.50 is all it costs to transform the life of one mother and her family in East Africa by giving her access to family planning for up to 5 years. Giving £5 a month would enable 8 women to make this choice in a year.

You can give via MyDonate for one-off and regular donations.
