Summary
Thomas Coram was a sea captain who made his name building ships in America. So how did England's first ever children's charity come to be named after him? Read his amazing story and find out! This book tells the story of Thomas Coram and how he set up the Foundling Hospital, which is now the charity simply known as Coram. It follows his journey to America, his return to London to find abandoned babies in the streets, and how he had help from famous figures like Hogarth and Handel to raise awareness and money for the hospital for vulnerable children
