BIG: Half a million pounds of BIG Lottery Fund good cause money is about to find its way to help more children in Ethiopia to survive beyond their fifth birthday. The children are being helped through the Lottery good cause grant to International Rescue Committee UK.
It is one of a group of international awards totalling more than £3.8m from the Fund to be channelled into improving the lives of people living in parts of the developing world. The funding is going to UK-based NGOs working across several African countries, Peru, Sri Lanka and India.
