How we got Started

Arthur McCluskey Foundation is the new name for St Joseph & The Helpers Charity (UK) Limited which was established in the U.K in November 2004 by Arthur McCluskey and fellow directors. It was set up to help the people of Bosnia Herzegovina to rebuild their lives following the cruel Yugoslav war of ‘92 – ‘95 when over 100,000 people were killed and at least two million (half the population) were made homeless. We aim to relieve poverty and advance education whilst respecting varying religions and cultures.

RIP, Arthur. 13th August 2011 was your last day on this earth. We thank God for your life and especially for the final 12 years when you lived a life of prayer and good works. The Kindergarten you built at Kiseljak has 150 children - the largest number in the whole of Bosnia Herzegovina.

Your love of race horses lead to a gambling addiction that left your life in tatters. We praise the Lord and His Blessed Mother, Mary that you were healed completely during your first visit to Medjugorje in 1999. You wrote about your life-changing experiences with the Old Lady on Mount Krisevac - pictured here with a copy of your book which can be read on www.arthurmc.com.

"Thank God it was my turn" - you wrote on the back of the lady's photograph in 2010. We thank God it was your turn too because your healing and conversion have resulted in dramatic changes for the better in many people's lives. You always said "together we can make a difference" and that has proved to be true over all these years since you left us.

Now, with our wonderful donors, we are helping the Cenacolo Community in Medjugorje for whom life is very difficult during the pandemic. They have not had the gift of instant healing, like you, but live through three years of hard work and prayer in order to recover from addiction. When Jesus is at the centre of their lives, they begin to change.
