CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research. CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public.

CRY aims to rescue and restore children and young people broken by poverty, oppression, exclusion and abuse. We set up projects that provide for the most basic needs - food, water, shelter, education - in some of the poorest nations in the world. But we recognise we can't do that on our own, so we train and support local people and churches to run the projects, using their knowledge to make the projects sustainable for the long-term. Founded in 1992 by Martyn Dunsford, CRY now works in around 20 different nations, and over its history has raised over £4,000,000 for the projects it has worked on.

Our Aim CAT 1977′s policy is to help feral cats by limiting their numbers through neutering and returning to site, by providing veterinary care where necessary, and by finding homes for kittens and tame stray cats. The charity is totally against killing for expediency. CAT 1977 also helps to educate the public and other animal welfare organisations about the humane control and care of the feral cat population through its website, newsletter and leaflets. Feral cats are the descendants of lost or abandoned domestic (“tame”) cats. Because they have not been handled by humans as kittens, they grow up as if they are wild animals and are wary of humans. They are therefore invariably extremely difficult to handle, and specialised equipment is needed to trap and restrain them without injury to the cat, the trapper, or the vet. Cats are extremely efficient reproducers. Large groups of feral cats (colonies) very soon build up and are found in numerous environments, such as parks, hospital grounds, factory premises and the gardens of private houses. Uncared for and allowed to breed unchecked, the life of a feral cat is short, miserable and full of suffering. However, once neutered, and if there is some shelter and a reliable food source available, feral cats can live long and healthy lives.
