£131raised of £1,206 target by 6 supporters

    Weʼve raised £131 to help Luke take part in a volunteer trip to Bulembu, Swaziland. Bulembu is an orphan town which is run and maintained by volunteers.

    Funded on Sunday, 8th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Luke is very passionate about helping people and this is something that he has done through his profession and in his spare time. Anyone that knows Luke knows how compassionate and caring he is.

    In November 2017 a group of 17 are going out to Swaziland, to a little town called Bulembu. The aim of the trip is to support the community in any way they can. That may be through manual labour- painting, building, fixing. or through the skill set that the team have - teaching, youth work, computer skills..

    The duration of the trip is 16 days which will have to be taken as annual leave.

    Bulembu is only able to expand and support more children by the work that volunteer teams do - fixing houses, maintaining the school buildings, building steps, fixing play equipment..

    Emily visited Bulembu last November and found that not only was she able to have an impact on the lives of numerous children but got equally as much back - a truly life changing experience.

    Bulembu aims to restore a town and transform a nation!

    Some Background on Bulembu...

    Bulembu is a small town on the Swaziland border. Due to the the high level of HIV/AIDS (38%- highest infection rate in the world) Swaziland has an orphan crisis. It was estimated by the UN that if the rate of death continues then by 2050 the Swazi people will cease to exist.

    In 2001, the mining company that built and worked in Bulembu closed its doors. A christian organisation bought the town with the aim of changing the future for the Swazi people.

    Today, Bulembu has a clear vision to become a vibrant, sustainable community. This vision for sustainability includes fostering the development of a new generation of emerging leaders through orphan care, education, health services and commerce.

    By donating money you are supporting Luke to have this amazing opportunity to make a lasting impact on the lives of Swazi orphans and the wider community.
