We believe in kindness and compassion…..
The overall aim of OHOB is to provide humanitarian aid relief for refugee and asylum seekers in Europe and other essential items to families and individuals in the UK who have been disadvantaged by conflict, circumstance, socio-economic status or homelessness. Additionally, we support the resettlement of refugees and asylum seekers in the South West of England through accessing much-needed household items. We are now a registered charity – Charity No: 1184631
We ship 2 x 40ft containers of humanitarian aid each year to Greece and support 4 x van collections of aid for France; we also support many other groups and projects here in the South West with essential items. So not only do we support humanitarian aid to Europe, we continually donate items to food banks in Devon and Cornwall, we help various homeless charities and women’s projects by by providing baby items, clothing and warmth. We accept requests for essential items direct from charities and projects, so please get in touch via email. Our overall aim is to ensure that those, who through conflict, or circumstances out of their control are able to start to rebuild their lives and know that there is plenty of love and kindness in the world.
We are all volunteers, so much of our fundraising is done within the community and across social media. This supports our humanitarian activities both locally and internationally. You can help us to continue with our work by donating essential items, your time or financial assistance.
