Slide - CLAN

CLAN is an acronym for Caring & Living As Neighbours.

CLAN is dedicated to the dream that all children living with chronic health conditions in resource-poor countries of the world will enjoy a quality of life on par with that of their neighbours' children in wealthier countries.

CLAN is an Australian-based, not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation (NGO), approved by AusAID for Overseas Aid Gift Deductibility Status (OAGDS) and the Australian Taxation Office for Tax Deductibility Status. In 2010 CLAN was formally approved for association by the United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) as an NGO. CLAN was proud to serve as the inaugural Secretariat of NCD Child.

CLAN is a full signatory to the Australian Council For International Development (ACFID) Code of Conduct.  Should there be a time when you feel that CLAN is not seen to be acting in accordance with our policies or you have a concern that you would like to raise, please contact us or connect with ACFID directly.
