The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018

Published 16th November 2018

From 12pm on Tuesday 27th November, Giving Tuesday, to 12pm on Tuesday 4th December, every penny donated to Doctors of the World will be doubled!

Any money donated before 27th November will not be doubled.

This year, Doctors of the World UK is taking part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge. We aim to raise £7,500 to be matched to a total of £15,000!

The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign helping charities raise funds for their cause. During this week, we will be able to double donations made on our The Big Give page with match funds.

The Challenge will make a massive difference to our work, and the funds raised will be used to support our project with refugees and migrants in the UK.

What will the funds be used for?

  • To increase outreach and take the mobile clinic to three new location
  • To expand our clinic to another city, providing nationwide support
  • To support our advice line and improve support to our service users

If you would like to donate to Doctors of the World, The Big Give Challenge will allow your money to go even further!
