Moxafrica is a UK-registered charity set up in 2008 to investigate the use of moxibustion therapy for the treatment of tuberculosis, particularly drug-resistant TB, in resource-poor environments. Moxibustion is a traditional East Asian treatment method and is documented as having been successfully used to treat TB in Japan in the 1930s. Moxa is low tech, cheap and unpatentable. We have funded scientific research in Uganda, but much more is needed. The poor and the powerless need and deserve our support.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
