Who we are
Emilie’s Charities was set up in memory of Emilie Harris who was tragically killed in a cycling accident in Oxford in 2004. Emilie had recently been elected as Charities Representative for her college, St. Catherine’s, and had previously worked in an orphanage in South America and visited Africa. She was very moved by her experiences where she saw first hand the issues of poor and orphaned children. Since its inception, therefore, Emilie’s Charities has sought to support projects involving under-privileged children and young adults in developing countries.
