Giving Back to Sierra Leone
Educaid feeds, clothes, medicates and educates each child for just £15 per month so a small donation can go a long way. Please help me to help them.
Raising money for
EducAid Sierra Leone
Donations accepted until 04-12-2016
I recently travelled to Sierra Leone to work in an Ebola lab. Whilst there I visited two schools run by the wonderful Miriam Mason-Sesay, a teacher originally from Britain who now runs 9 free schools with over 3000 students. For many of the children the schools are also their home and family.
In a country devastated by crippling poverty, a barbaric war, AIDS, corruption and Ebola these schools are a safe haven. Other threats include child marriage, FGM and exploitation.These schools aim to produce honest, well-educated adults who can eventually help improve Sierra Leone as a whole.
Couch to 10km Mud Run
I desperately want to show you how much this charity means to me so I am embarking on running, an alien concept for me ! Unfit and overweight, I needed to start somewhere so I walked the Bristol Girls Can Glitter Run (Nov 2015) (6 miles on a sprained ankle). I then ran the 5km Colour Obstacle Rush (April 2016) followed by the Bradley Stoke 10km race in which I finished just within the allotted 1 1/2 hour limit, in last place .
In addition, for your sponsorship money, my end goal is to run the 10km Filthy Girl Mud Run (Sep 2016), a run in mud with obstacles ! It will require a serious amount of physical and mental fitness and will be a very tough after a series of health setbacks and injuries.
Please show your support for me and this amazing charity. Can I assure you that all money will go directly to helping to look after and educate the children of Sierra Leone. It is a corruption-free charity for which any administrative costs are paid for by the trustees.
Thank you very much.
