Who we are

Cradle is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) that looks after children in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Albania and Thailand.

We were formed in November 1992, by a group of people who held fundraising events to generate aid for children in Bosnia & Herzegovina and their families. The response from the people and businesses was overwhelming.

This ongoing support has enabled us to supply aid to the children in the Balkans from 1993 to date. In 1999, with the outbreak of the Kosovo crisis we expanded our work to include Kosovo and Albania. Our aim is to be a conduit of material, financial and other aid to children based on what we, in consultation with our representatives in the region, identify as their main needs.
In response to the Tsunami disaster that happened in December 2004, we have decided to work outside of the Balkans and to bring our well established projects to the areas affected most in Southeast Asia. Cradle has now established an office in Khao Lak, in the Phang-gna province where we have local representatives working to implement Cradle’s emergency aid programmes. Our focus is on child based support programmes such as School Rebuilding projects, House Building projects and Student Support projects. We have also established our Family Support programme which provides financial aid to selected families on a regular basis. Although short term aid is badly needed, it is also vital that these people are supported on a long term basis so that they can overcome the mental, physical and economic challenge they are now faced with.

We are apolitical and provide aid to children without regard to their religion, ethnic background or nationality.
