Once in a lifetime is a UK Registered Charity No: 1112679 and have had our registered charitable status since January 2006.
Bringing relief of poverty to people who have so little that any help makes a difference, we have achieved this to date by the numerous projects we have successfully accomplished and the difference we have made to many lives has been testament to our vision and we will continue with this work.
We do not use any funding on overheads or expenses other than on our causes and we hope to be able to continue with this principle. This is what is different about our charity. Our entire committee pays their own travel and other expenses as we see it as part of our commitment to our cause.
The second house project is now complete. Previously living in a tented accomodation, now have brick house.
One of the two houses approved is well on the way to completion.
Thank you to all of you who have made donations via paypal online, cheques or given cash.
Every penny donatated goes direct to those who need it.
