It's a big world out there,
make friends with it.

Just Say Hello logo

Each year one million international students come to the UK to study. For many the experience can be a daunting prospect… but you can help.

Friends International are inviting you and your church to’ Just Say Hello’,  by stepping forward to welcome international students to the UK and Ireland, by supporting the work of Friends International. 

Although universities up and down the country are reeling from the impact of Covid-19, thousands of students have arrived for the start of the new academic year. The support Friends International provides is needed more than ever. 

Will you act today and become a friend of international students by making a donation and helping young people to shape the future?

However, we would still ask you to complete this form, so that we can provide you with a giving reference and allocate your gift according to your wishes.

Please note that our typical working hours for processing any incoming gift or donation will take place during Tuesday to Thursday, 9.30am to 3pm. Thank you.

You will notice that this form doesn’t ask for your bank details. This is because, once you complete the form, we will contact you with the details you need to set up your regular gift through your own bank.

Support the Work of Friends International

International students come to the UK in there thousands, but they will only hear the Good News if churches and individuals are prepared to give and pray to the work.



We would like to ask you to make a gift, no matter what size, so that more international students will have the opportunity to meet Christians and encounter Christ.
