Destiny of a Child is a non-profit making charity, which supports cochlear implantation
for profoundly deaf children, physically disabled children and Aids orphans.
Destiny of a Child was established in February 2002 and is managed on a voluntary
basis by Annie Martin. Annie had the idea of setting up the charity after a conversation
with Francois, her godchild, who had received a cochlear implant at the age of three.
After speaking with Francois on the telephone for the first time, Annie appreciated
the marvellous results of his cochlear implant. She decided that she would like
to help other children with the same condition.
As the charity has grown in the recent months, Destiny of a Child has decided to
expand from the original objective of helping deaf children and is now also raising
money for other charities in UK, France and Tanzania. We make sure that all the
funding that we provide is used with consideration and care. The charities that
we are supporting are:
The UK charity is:

We are immensely grateful for the support that Destiny of a Child has given us this year. Profoundly deaf children, their parents and professionals could not carry on their work without your help.
