He said:“The Commission has supported Plan UK for such a sustained period of time due to the clarity and precision of information it provides and its consistent commitment within the communities it operates”.Plan UK is also supported by 95,000 sponsors in the UK, who generate £24 million a year, and support 1 million sponsored children worldwide.last_img
