INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF RED CROSS & RED CRESCENT SOCIETIES
Land Rover works with Red Cross Societies globally in projects as diverse as disaster preparedness to helping people in times of economic difficulties. For example Land Rover is working with the British Red Cross to provide day-to-day, practical help for vulnerable people living alone in isolated communities who face real difficulties, particularly after a stay in hospital.
THE BORN FREE FOUNDATION
A boma is a fence made from locally-sourced materials and used to protect people and livestock from lions and other predators, thereby helping to protect lions from being hunted by herdsmen. We work with the Born Free Foundation to help erect bomas in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, protecting some 2,500 people and 32,500 animals.
ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY (WITH IBG)
Land Rover has supported the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) for 25 years, funding outreach and expedition activities including the Land Rover Bursary.
