LATEST FUNDRAISING AIMS - CAN YOU HELP?
Bumburi Medical Centre, Nepal - we are in the final stages of building the medical centre in the village of Bumburi which will serve communities in the surrounding area, an estimated total of around twenty thousand people who currently lack access to decent medical care. So far we have spent £8,600 on the project and there is a further £4,000 needed to finish off the interior and then build a toilet/wash block. Could you help with a fundraiser to see this project finished so that we can open the medical centre with the community in 2015?
We also need to collect and buy materials and equipment for the clinic, if you can source or know of anywhere to get basic medical items for a clinic then please do contact us.
Gilbert Njeru runs Nairobi Half-Marathon for Moving Mountains - MMKenya Chairman Gilbert Njeru successfully ran the Nairobi Half-Marathon for Moving Mountains on Sunday 26th October. Gilbert was training in the streets of Embu every morning in preparation and completed his first ever half-marathon in 2 hours 45 minutes. Gilbert took on the challenge to raise funds for the programmes he manages in Embu through Embu Rescue Centre for Street Children - rehabilitation and counselling, football and sports coaching, school feeding programmes and social welfare support. These programmes costs the charity 117,000 shillings per month which is around £790.00. You can still sponsor Gilbert's run for MM here: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/gilbertrunsthenairobihalfmarathon and contribute to our youth rehabitation and development work in Embu.
