DCI has never been a fund-raising organisation nor do we make appeals, send out magazines or ask for offerings, rather we are a gathering point for people who feel called to giving for the benefit of the last, the lost and the least of the world. As Pastor Oswald Smith famously said in the 1930's, "If you can't go yourself, then for God's sake, send someone else."


Les Norman is a journalist, writer and a fund manager with the DCI Trust, serving the lost, the last and the least of the world. Since 1977 he has been following the call of Christ. He is married to Pilar and they have three grown up children.
