Emergency/Disaster Relief

Emergency / Disaster Relief Aid

During our time establishing the Hospital and running the facility we have already experienced local or global disaster/ emergencies that have impacted the day to day lives of many people who live in Kasguma region and beyond.

In 2019 we experienced a heavy earthquake in the region, with its epicentre situated only 9miles from the hospital itself. This earthquake had a major impact on the lives and livelihood of many people causing 850 casualties, 40 deaths and a lot of structural damage to peoples residencies and public buildings and roads. Although the death toll and casualty figure was low within Kasguma itself, our medical team and ambulance was requested to join other medical teams to provide first aid and immediate treatment to those who were injured.

In 2020 the entire world has been faced with the Corona Virus Pandemic situation, surely this has also had its effects within the region. The trust has been quick off the mark to ensure and educate the locals are safe and secure. We have also understood that many of the breadwinners of families often work on a daily basis to provide for their needs, due to the current lockdown enforcements, we understand that people are not able to work and earn to take home essential food supplies and necessities, therefore we have arranged food packs containing essential items and have distributed this in a controlled manner to all those who are registered as being from poorer families and widows,

We hope our efforts will give them some support during this difficult period. Currently we have already distributed over 500 packs all over Kasguma and surrounding villages of Chowki, Bhindhi, Dadra and Barjun. We have furthermore provided the poor and needy with over 2000 blankets.

As a trust we aim to extend our help and support where possible to all those who are vulnerable during times of any disaster and emergencies that are experienced on a large scale. Our efforts have already been taken warmly by all and we have received a lot of backing from our donors that continue to give donations during these times of need.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Kasguma Health & Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Kasguma Health & Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Kasguma Health & Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Kasguma Health & Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Kasguma Health & Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
