5. charity -- an institution set up to provide help to the needy

*Disclaimer: Mediaman is not a charity, nor a company that is set up in a philanthropic manner, however, we do regularly liaise and assist those in this sector, and we do enjoy a long and successful background in charity, community assistance and support.

*We can likely assist you in a limited fashion, when we see a "win-win" or genuine need. In most cases, we will require a moderate fee to cover our expenses for the work and effort required, in this most specialised of areas. As is the case in most organisations, we need to be careful where we channel our time, effort and resources. Best Regards, Greg Tingle, Director, Mediaman.
