If you like contributing to human rights groups, but are a little concerned when providing “aid” sometimes means animals for farming and slaughter, then Vegfam might be for you. It’s like Oxfam without the ox/chicken/goat abuse. Vegfam promotes sustainable environmentally-friendly projects that “reduce the dependency on external food aid, decreasing the dependence on outside assistance.” Neat, huh?
For over 40 years, VEGFAM has provided Overseas Famine Relief in more than 40 countries, helping millions of people who were suffering from hunger, thirst, malnutrition and starvation.
We fund sustainable, self supporting projects which do not exploit animals or the environment.
The Fragile Environment of Developing Countries cannot support TWO populations Humans and their Food Animals. Animal derived food, especially if it is intensively produced, squanders resources and damages the Earth’s fragile environment.
VEGFAM is one of only a few Charities in the UK which is trying to prevent Developing Countries copying our ecologically disastrous “Western” Lifestyle.
If you are a Vegan, Vegetarian and/or interested in environmental issues, VEGFAM’S work should be of particular interest to you.
VEGFAM is professionally operated by volunteers, so as much as possible is spent on (vegan) famine relief projects.
To date, millions of people around the world are alive as a result of VEGFAM funded famine relief projects.

Another people-friendly/vegan-friendly charity is: HIPPO: Help International Plant Protein Organisation. HIPPO is founded on the belief that providing food to the world’s poor and hungry does not have to cause suffering to animals… What a mind bender! Ha. It’s good, compassionate stuff.
