Friends of Buburi supporter Emma Heath, a remedial massage therapist from Devon is in training for an awesome challenge. A walk of 100km! Please read below and pledge your support of this massive effort. The money raised will be going toward our new building planned for later this year to provide a purpose built mother and child centre for antenatal care, safe delivery, post natal care and ongoing immunisation programme for children under five years.
” I wanted to do something out of the ordinary that will make a real difference to people’s lives by fundraising for the charity Friends of Buburi. I’ve signed up to complete the Grand Union Challenge, a walk of 100km that I am hoping to finish in 24 hours! The charity provides essential health care through the clinic in Western Kenya. The region has the highest incidence of malaria in the world with the greatest mortality rate among children under 5. Thanks to the trustees’ relentless efforts over 8 years, the clinic now employs 13 staff, providing affordable healthcare, medicines, treatment, immunisation as well as vital education. Last year they treated 12,660 patients. With a mosquito net costing 50p, every penny I can raise will literally continue to help the clinic save lives.
Thank you for your support, with love from Emma” x
We wish you luck Emma and give our heartfelt thanks.
