The Jermain Defoe Foundation was founded in 2013 by England striker Jermain Defoe to support homeless, vulnerable and abused young people in his family’s home country of St Lucia and surrounding islands.

The foundation works closely with the St Lucia government and existing organisations on the island that support and care for young people. This includes the Holy Family Children’s Home in Ciceron which caters for around a dozen children from toddlers to teenagers. This is the only dedicated children’s home on the island.

The Foundation hopes to raise funds to build a second children’s home in the south of St Lucia so that more young people can receive the care and help they need.

Currently, the Jermain Defoe Foundation is raising money in aid of Dominica Hurricane Relief to help the children and families whose lives were devastated by Hurricane Maria.
