The Canon Collins Educational & Legal Assistance Trust
The Legal Assistance Trust (LAT) has merged with a London-based charity, the Canon Collins Trust, to form the Canon Collins Educational & Legal Trust (CCELAT). By raising funds for free legal services for poor people in countries outside the UK, the CCELAT aims to relieve poverty and suffering.
The organisation, through the LAT, has supported the work of the LRC for over 23 years.
The Southern Africa Legal Services Foundation was established in 1979 by concerned American lawyers. The primary purpose was to support and raise funds for the LRC in its efforts to fight against apartheid and to fight for human rights, the principles of democracy and the rule of law, and justice and equality for the poor and disadvantaged.
In post-apartheid South Africa, the SALS Foundation continues to support and raise funds for the LRC in its critical role in the transformation of South Africa.
In addition to the LRC, SALS Foundation supports, in an advisory role, the Legal Resources Foundation in Zimbabwe and the Legal Assistance Centre in Namibia.
