Charity description

Lifebox logo
Lifebox works to save lives by improving the safety and quality of surgical and anaesthesia care in low-resource countries.

It’s been a privilege celebrating 5 years of Lifebox this year. Through programmes, partnerships, and a commitment to every surgical provider, we’ve made 10 million lives safer.

But with 5 billion lives on the line - 5 billion people without access to safe surgical and anaesthetic care when they need it - it’s clear the work is only just beginning. What will the next five years bring? How many of us will see ourselves or a loved one facing those swinging doors? Hopefully we’ll all find what we need in that moment - a reassuring clinical team, a sterile OR, an oximeter that beeps.

We are committed to making this a right, not a privilege, for every patient and this holiday season, we’re asking you to help us support our work with a donation.

We have been challenged by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to raise $100,000 in the next year. For every dollar we raise, SNF will double it, ensuring we can increase our capacity to do even more in 2017.

Charity No: 1143018
