Mags and Ken Whiting, Trustees

Mags and Ken joined the charity in early 1995 and drove an ambulance with humanitarian aid out to Belarus just a few weeks later. They then led several aid convoys to Belarus; have always played a key part in the management of the charity; and have co-ordinated the Glossop group for the last twelve years. ken.mags.w@talktalk.net

Jean Holt

Jean has recently retired as Co-ordinator of our training programmes. For ten years she organised three or four training programmes every year which have helped to get children out of orphanages and into local foster families and also brought about significant improvements in child care.
