What we achieved together in 2016

2016 saw a year of turmoil and crisis on the world stage. But through every challenge, we drew inspiration from the strength and determination of the people we work with and encouragement from the support of our donors, campaigners and volunteers.

In these challenging times, we found much to celebrate and much to be thankful for.
