Help our partners realise their vision of hope for their communities
Caroline is known for visiting places where many others are unwilling or unable to go. She speaks regularly in Parliament about her fact-finding missions to forgotten conflict zones and the inspirational projects of HART’s local partners.
Through her humanitarian work, Caroline stands in solidarity with people who are persecuted, marginalised, oppressed and ignored by the world’s media. She shines a light on their suffering and advocates for their freedom.
Areas travelled include the disputed region of Abyei, remote jungles in Burma, Sudan and South Sudan, Uganda, Nigeria, Syria and North Korea. She’s visited the mountainous enclave of Nagorno Karabakh over 90 times.
Caroline has risked her life many times to deliver medical aid and food supplies to people in need. She was instrumental in helping to change the former Soviet Union policies for orphaned and abandoned children from institutional to foster family care.
Baroness Cox has received numerous awards in recognition of her humanitarian work and other causes, including:
- Commander Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland

What people say about Caroline's biography, 'Eyewitness to a Broken World'
Baroness Cox has been a courageous voice of the voiceless in what she describes as a ‘broken world’… This is both fascinating and revealing reading.
Lord Singh of Wimbledon
In a world darkened by conflict and human rights abuses, Baroness Caroline Cox stands as a beacon of light.
Raheel Raza, President, Council for Muslims Facing Tomorrow
Caroline Cox is remarkable… This book faithfully records her profound service of some of the world’s most marginalised people.
Rt Revd Philip Mounstephen, Bishop of Truro
…the perfect rebuttal of the defeatist view that because the world is a complex and inordinately brutal place no individual can do anything much to change it.
Lord Alton of Liverpool
Others in the West offer to send aid to those who are persecuted – that aid may or may not arrive – but Baroness Cox comes herself.
