Human Appeal is a faith based, international humanitarian and development charity, with big ambitions to alleviate poverty.
They came to us to totally transform and optimise their website, with a fast approaching deadline of Ramadan in 2018 – their busiest time of the year for donations. We accepted the challenge and got to work.

Overlayed on top of these insights and research, we used the digital team’s expertise in the charity sector to bake in the right balance of urgency, transparency, security, feel-good, and emotive content in the right places to optimise the solution.
