Helping to relieve poverty, suffering and disease in Africa

Trustees
Jerry Clore (Chair) Jerry, a solicitor, set up his own law firm in London in 1995 and soon gained a strong reputation for representing refugees as well as children and families affected by HIV/AIDS. In 1996 and 2003 he defeated the government in high profile test cases in the Court of Appeal, over the withdrawal of support from refugees. Jerry is one of only a few lawyers to have been short-listed more than once for the prestigious Liberty Human Rights Lawyer of the Year award and was runner-up in the 2002 UNICEF Child Rights’ Lawyer award for his work on behalf of unaccompanied child refugees. He co-founded the Kisakye Children's Trust in 2005.
Derek Atkins (Secretary) In 2002 Derek was appointed to head up work at The Mildmay Centre in Uganda – an HIV/AIDS treatment and training centre near Kampala. By 2005 it had doubled its intake and had more than 5,000 regular HIV+ clients, while over 1,200 Ugandans were being trained in aspects of HIV/AIDS. Derek eventually handed over his responsibilities to others and returned to work in the UK. He retains a keen interest in the task of mitigating the effects of HIV/AIDS worldwide and his vast experience in the field makes him invaluable to KCT.
Paul Burgess Paul is a television producer/director and editor, and a photographer.
