Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
With a team of friends on October 25th I am running a marathon in Washington. My challenge is to finish! as I have an ongoing injury. But more importantly on the otherside of the world we have an ongoing challenge, we need to raise money for a charity called Merlin.
Merlin is a global humanitarian organisation, specialising in saving lives in times of crisis and also committed to looking beyond to safeguard long-term health.
Maternal health is a priority right now with a mother dying every minute from pregnancy-related causes. 75% of these lives could be saved if there was access to a trained midwife and emergency obstetric care. You can learn more about the Hands Up for Health Care Workers campaign here www.youtube.com/watch
$2 will vaccinate a child against measles
$10 will provide a stethoscope to monitor an unborn child's heartbeat
$50 can pay for treatment to prevent HIV + pregnant women passing the virus onto babies
$150 will feed 5 malnourished children for a month
$200 will provide birthing kits for a community midwife to deliver 10 babies
$1000 will buy medical kits to equip six community midwives
All the fundraising our team collects will directly go to Merlin.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
