Ian Hutcheon Clinic for Children (IHCC) is a UK registered charity and Ugandan registered Non Government Organisation (NGO) that was founded in November 2011 by four trustees, friends coming together to share their skills, passion and commitment for starting a charity whose work will make a big difference to the lives of underprivileged children.
The charity was set up in memory of Ian Hutcheon, a businessman and personal friend of trustees Paul and Liz Choudhury. He devoted a lot of his time and energy into ensuring that young people were given opportunities in life to better themselves. To this effect he helped young people both here in the UK and in developing countries to reap the benefits of education as well as being involved in healthcare and medical research.
‘Let the Children Hear’ is a fitting tribute to Ian’s legacy as it will help to improve the educational and learning outcomes of children.
