The Jermain Defoe Foundation
WHO WE ARE
The Jermain Defoe Foundation was founded in 2013 by England footballer Jermain Defoe to support homeless, vulnerable and abused children and young people in his family’s home country of St Lucia. Since then, the foundation has expanded to support children and families in surrounding Carribean Islands and the UK.
- Continued support to the Holy Family Children's Home, the only dedicated children's home in St Lucia
- The Jermain Defoe Foundation has built a second children's home in St Lucia called Rainbow Children's Home, so funds are being raised to finalise the children's home and get it running
- Help children and schools in Dominica following the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria
- Support children in the UK with life-threatening illnesses such as neuroblastoma, working closely with the Bradley Lowery Foundation
