Welcome to the Zoe Lee Foundation

Our aim is to keep families together

Imagine your child is undergoing treatment for leukaemia or any other life threatening disease. You'd want to be close to them day and night. For many parents in South Africa, however, this is a luxury they can't afford. Travelling and accommodation is expensive. Very often parents and children are separated by many miles, sometimes for years! We can bring them together.

We need YOUR support! There are lots of ways that you can support us: shop online,donate online, attend or hold an event or make a regular donation.

The Zoe Lee Foundation have agreed to provide ZAR 250,000 (Approx £14,300) in funding towards the upgrade of the Dining Room/Lounge area. The work will commence in June 2014 and will hopefully be completed around December 2014.

We hope to upload more photos to this website as the work progresses and once the project is complete.

Nov 2013 The Zoe Lee Foundation Trustees Moira and Alistair Stenton were recently invited to give a presentation on the work of the charity to Arbroath Rotary Club where they were given a very warm welcome from approximately 40 Arbroath Rotarians, who listened with great interest to their talk, and provided some very useful feedback and suggestions.

The Zoe Lee Foundation was overwhelmed but very pleased, to receive a generous donation from the Rotarians on the night.
