Nadim Ednan-Laperouse MBE
CEO & Founder
I am an MD of a toy company and I will use my skills and knowledge for the good of Natasha’s foundation; to work towards funding essential allergy research with the aim of finding a cure for all and to also support changes in society essential for helping those living with this condition has become my drive and life’s goal. In July 2016 on that dreadful day that I lost my daughter, she cried out for me to help her. Her words will stay with me for the rest of my life. I was not able to help my child but I am determined that I will strive to help others through this foundation, which we have set up in her name.
“Come rain or shine I will think of you every day, at times weeping for my loss, in disbelief, yet never forgetting your radiant smile and kind spirit.”

CEO & Founder
Everything that I am, I owe to my daughter Natasha. She was a wonderful daughter, the very best and I learned so much from her. To those who knew her, she was a kind and loyal friend, she was brave, thoughtful and wise, funny, often hilarious, clever and so talented; to me always, my baby girl. I bring to this foundation 16 years experience in HR and PR and a great passion and desire to work towards giving allergy sufferers real hope and ultimately a cure. Until we find that cure, I will do everything I can to support allergy sufferers to manage and navigate their lives as safely as possible. It is too late for Natasha but there are many people just like her and they are all precious and deserve their lives and illness to be taken seriously.
“I miss my darling girl every single moment of every day… but I still feel her love, I truly do, and if I can feel her love, she must feel mine.”
- Natasha’s Mother
Watching my best friend and her husband fall apart after the devastating loss of their daughter was heart breaking. Natasha had so many wonderful talents and a real desire do something good in the world which is why this foundation is a fitting legacy to her. Her senseless death compels me to support them in their quest to bring positive change to people whose lives are marred allergy. I bring to this foundation my many years of experience and skills in marketing and strategy, a passionate desire to help push the boundaries of our understanding and my time and energy in bringing a voice to all sufferers who have not been heard until now.
“Tragedies can be the driver for much needed change & our quest is to ensure that we can provide a vehicle for this, in loving memory of our beautiful girl.”
