The British Asian Trust is a fantastic initiative helping those less fortunate than ourselves in the Asian Sub-continent. Helping tackle poverty, health and education, the trust’s work has transformed many lives. Where we are born and what we are born into is a lottery, it’s imperative to help those worse off than ourselves.
