Earlier this month, Nus welcomed her constituent, Helen Taylor Thompson, founder of ‘Thare Machi Education’ and resident of Nutley, to Parliament.
Thare Machi Education is a charity that delivers life-saving information and education to some of the world’s poorest people – especially women and children. This charity was born out of Ms Taylor Thompson’s passion and longstanding dedication to helping those in need, especially people with AIDS.
Nus was delighted to be able to carry on the legacy of the previous MP for Wealden in supporting this charity. In the past Nus has championed charity in the House of Commons and has brought it to the attention of her colleagues in the Department for International Development.
Commenting on the announcement, Ms Ghani said: “As a supporter of the charity, ‘Thare Machi Education’, it was wonderful to be able to talk to Ms Taylor Thompson about her work and to see how much of an impact this local charity has had around the world.
I am especially keen to support this charity, as was my predecessor, because it helps some of the most vulnerable people, including women and girls, to make decisions relating to their health, education and careers. I was very pleased to see this charity represented in Parliament and I wish them every success in their future work.”
