Founded in 1996 by Beverley De-Gale and Orin Lewis, the Afro-Caribbean Leukemia Trust has worked diligently to save lives by encouraging people of ethnic minorities to become blood and bone marrow donors.
Not only this, the ACLT has acted as a support network to a countless numbers of families dealing with leukemia.
Now, due to a lack of funding, the ACLT is in serious crisis and could face closure if they do not raise £80,000 by March 31st 2011. Although only a short term measure, this money will help give the ACLT time to find further sources for long term funding.
