Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit our fundraising page on iDonate.ie.  We partcipated in the Around the World challenge on Saturday 19th of June 2021. We've chosen to fundraise for to enable Brighter Communities Worldwide to continue its fight against COVID-19 in Kenya.  As countries are opening up across the globe, we are still fighting for access to vaccines; for soap; for handwashing; for education.  Today only 0.7% of the population has recevied their first vaccine dose with about 100,000 people fully vaccinated (in a country of 50 million!!!).  We need to do what we can.....COVID-19 has shown us all the inequalities across the globe - so we continue our journey of reducing this inequality; of justice; and of creating better futures for all we work with.  

On Saturday 19th June we walked from dawn to dusk across Kericho County to raise awareness and funds of our work in Kenya.   Every donation counts so please give what you can - it is truly truly appreciated.   Simply click the Donate button above. All donations are processed securely.You can also share my page using Share options below. This is a great way to show your support. Many Thanks for your support.  Asante Sana!

  • Yesterday was on of those days .... The day started for us at 4am as lunches and breakfast had to be prepared. We left Londiani with the team around 6am heading towards Masita. It was dark, cold and very Misty.... until we got to the top of Masita Hill the mist cleared and the views were spectacular while having breakfast. From there we trekked through villages, forests, mountains across Kipkelion East Sub County .. taking in the waterfall and back to Londiani as the sun was setting... and 43km completed ...an amazing day on so many levels... we believe that #doingittogether we can end this pandemic; we can support the Health Care Workers, and communities across this region. Together is so much better than alone ... a huge thank you to all who have supported our journey to date .. know that you are truly making a difference. We are not safe until we are all safe... Asante Sana!

  • Kericho County has just been shut down for 30 days due to #COVID19. Here working from home is not an option - if you don’t work you don’t eat... that’s the harsh reality. Made harsher by the lack of resources in health facilities... to protect health workers gloves and masks are vital. Here a box of masks costs about 5 euros and gloves about 12 euros. We are walking from dawn to dusk tomorrow to raise funds to continue to protect the communities we work with. Join us if you can ... donate now ... it all adds up. Thanks to all who have donated already - hugely appreciated! Asante Sana!
