Our #HumansCare series features stories of amazing people across the world who are dedicated to helping carers in developing countries. This week our story focuses on one of our inspirational community supporters Els Jonker.

We met Els at a conference and explored our shared passion to change the lives of carers around the world. Since that moment, Els has become a wonderful advocate of our work and donates often to help us to reach more carers through our vital programmes.

Last week, Els rallied her friends to celebrate her birthday by donating to Carers Worldwide instead of buying her a gift. Such a generous gesture that will make a big difference to the life of another human, who Els is unlikely to ever meet.

Thank you to Els and all of her friends who joined her to mark this special occasion.

You have given us a gentle reminder of the wonderful things that can happen when #HumansCare.

Please get in touch if you would like to celebrate your next birthday by helping others, or click here to set up a donation page now.
