BBC Lifeline, a monthly charity appeal, works with charities to highlight important issues, such as poverty and health, facing the world today, encouraging viewers to understand the plight of those less fortunate and raise awareness of the charity. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is the UK's public-service broadcaster, headquartered at Broadcasting House in London.
On Sunday 17th May 2015, BBC One aired MicroLoan's BBC Lifeline Appeal, which was presented by Business Leader and Micro Finance advocate, Deborah Meaden. Below is a link to the MicroLoan page, which will give you more information on the organisation.
“We are delighted to be working with the SDL Foundation and to celebrate five years of achieving significant change to disadvantaged communities around the world. The Foundation’s support is very important to MicroLoan’s drive to change the lives of impoverished women in rural communities of Malawi and Zambia by enabling them to set up their own sustainable businesses. The income from their businesses enables them to save, feed their families, buy life-saving medicines and send their children to school. On behalf of everyone from MicroLoan and our clients and their families we would like to thank the Foundation and all of the SDL staff for your generosity and commitment – you are inspiring to work with.”
Peter Ryan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, MicroLoan Foundation.
