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.

The Three Hills of Medjugorje

Apparition Hill
Cross Mountain
The Hill of Goodness

The first two are part of the landscape. The third hill is crumbling as there are no pilgrims to create employment and give donations.

Together we can rebuild the Hill of Goodness. Donate at arthurmc.com/donate-now

Mary’s Hands – Marijine Ruke

Arthur McCluskey Foundation have been asked by Jakov Colo, visionary, and Fr Marinko, PP of Medjugorje, if we can help to promote Jakov’s charity work feeding 500+ families each month.

With no pilgrims to Medjugorje this year, Jakov’s funds are diminishing. He invites readers of our facebook page to donate on our website www.arthurmc.com. Please click "Donate Now" button and chose "Mary's Hands" from the dropbox menu.

The Kay Centre/Women's Refuge has survived over 20 years thanks to the generosity of pilgrims to Medjugorje. The pandemic has changed everything. The Franciscan Sisters and Lay Staff were living in fear of closure, as they were unable to pay bills and salaries. Can you help them to survive?

Fr Ray Kelly supports this project and you can listen to him on the attached video. We hope you will enjoy him singing "Everybody Hurts" and "When a Child is Born"

The Women's Refuge in Medjugorje (called Mother Krispina or the Kay Centar) is in danger of closure with debts of over €4,000 in utility bills alone. As in other parts of the world, domestic abuse has increased so the facility is more important than ever.

Sr Leopoldina, the staff, women and children at the Refuge are very grateful for your help. In thanksgiving, they walked to the Blue Cross to plant a shrub close to Our Lady's Statue.

They had been praying a novena by the statue every evening and on the last day, they received our first donation. They cannot believe the goodness of Our Lord and His Blessed Mother - and our donors, of course.

Please click arthurmc.com/donate-now/ if you would like to support them. We hope that you enjoy the photographs of Sr Leopoldina using a pickaxe to plant the shrub amongst the rocks!

That shrub is in a holy place in thanksgiving to you for helping these women and children. Thank you for your kindness.
