The charity International Help for Children was founded in 1947 with the principle intention of giving holidays to needy British and European children affected by the World War, especially refugees and those thrown into poverty by the effects of the war. It continued to operate for 53 years then became the Margaret McEwen Trust by which time the IHC's activities had altered in nature but continued to provide relief for children in need. The Trust was then amalgamated with the Little Pond House Trust which had played an integral part in the IHC story.
