Our charity is there to make young people's lives better by enabling them to have the basic provisions.


We are located in Capel near Folkestone and have been a charity for over thirty years, sending humanitarian aid to Africa. 

Operation Sunshine continues to grow with the largest size containers ( forty foot ) being used these days. We send a container out every two or three months. At the moment we are restricted to sending containers to Zambia but we are hoping to receive the relevant permission to send to Lesotho before the end of 2017.
