The Jermain Defoe Foundation was founded in 2013 by England footballer Jermain Defoe to support homeless, vulnerable and abused children in his family’s home country of St Lucia.

Jermain’s grandparents came from the Caribbean island and he has been visiting every year since he was a young child.

St Lucia is well known as a paradise holiday destination but little is heard of the poverty and abuse suffered by children there.

Since the launch of The Jermain Defoe Foundation, we have expanded our cause to support children and families in surrounding Carribean Islands and the UK.
