Ambeya's Sahara Trek
Having never had an Our Time experience whilst growing up, I take it as an obligation on my behalf to prevent others experiencing a tough childhood.
Raising money for
I care for a mum suffering with severe mental illnesses. Her schizophrenia, bipolar and split personalities mean that her inability to recognise dreams from reality and her constant split personalities stopped her becoming the mother she could’ve been. As the eldest, I became mum to myself and younger siblings; dealing with damaging, unimaginable pressures.
Working with Our Time, I’ve met kids from the age of 3 who are forced to become adults. Their expertise and support help kids manage and overcome the fear of their parent’s illness.
I am delighted to be part of a movement that campaigns and helps these children. I have taken a personal stand to speak up for them and the message I want to share is that we all can prevent the cycle of mental illness.
I hope that the work I do opens up doors for conversations and increases the emphasis on how important it is to hear from the voices of the unseen and unheard; whose voices are silenced through stigma and shame.
Sahara Trek 2018
I have decided to take part in a sponsored trek across the Sahara Desert to raise money for Our Time and promote their service worldwide. This organisation has the potential to succeed with its future plans in place. Being a wimp when it comes to scorching temperature means it would be an even bigger achievement for me trek for hours in such heat. Your donations and generosity will help give a voice to young carers and make a difference to their lives.
