 Often the charities that have the slickest advertising campaigns and who can afford to and choose to employ a good Public Relations firm are those that are supported the most whilst perhaps even more deserving causes are left short of funds because they either won’t or can’t afford to use the latest advertising techniques etc.

We don’t spend any donated money on advertising

We are a small Christian organisation
made up of ordinary people

We have no paid fund raisers

No donated money is spent on admin in the UK

Tanzania is the one of the poorest countries in the world

apply for lottery funding

Bethany’s aim is to help the most underprivileged,
deprived and vulnerable members of society,

commitment and compassion.
