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 61, is a journalist, writer, speaker and a manager for the DCI Fund, focussing on 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 with three grown up children.
