I decided upon this charity because it was our first decision and I am reminded that I made a commitment to donate to it. However, I will certainly bear in mind the other charities mentioned in the comments. Thank you very much for your suggestions.
As it happens, I’m not sure whether my donation will actually work out for the better because this lady is seeking $3000 and at the time that I made a donation she had only received $100. I don’t know but it may well be money down the drain but we have to try without the fear of losing the money.
I hope the regulars agree with this decision. It is always difficult to make a decision of this nature.
