J.K. Rowling’s international children’s charity Lumos has launched their Home for Christmas Appeal to coincide with the countdown to the festive season.

Their annual ‘Home for the Holidays Appeal’ focuses on the theme that children belong at home, where they can enjoy the holidays and special moments throughout the year within a loving, supportive family.

With Lumos working with communities in countries like Ukraine, Moldova, Kenya and Colombia, their campaign demonstrates how community-based care is possible and beneficial for all, right across the globe.

Lilian Rose, Global Director of Fundraising and Engagement at Lumos said:

By working with everyone, we can make a change—through raising much-needed funds to support care reform with local communities and bring an end to children growing up in institutions where they don’t belong.”

Lumos relies on supporters and donations from around the world to fund its work.  Thanks to the generous support of J.K. Rowling and others, these funds go directly to protecting children around the world.
