Weʼve raised £170 to Raising Funds for Christian School Places for Albanian Children Living under “Blood Feud”
- Shkodër, Albania
- Funded on Monday, 6th August 2018
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.
Pastor Jeremy Parkes & Graham Jones are going to walk 62 miles along the Ceredigion coastline in 5 days week commencing Monday 14th May 2018 to raise money to provide a daily Christian education and a meal for children whose families live under “Blood Feud” in Albania.
So, what is a blood feud? It can be trigged by something as trivial as a dispute between neighbours or a disagreement among family; an incident that, anywhere else, might be forgotten with the passage of time or left to the authorities to resolve.
But in northern and central Albania, where an ancient code of conduct known as the kanun still regulates life for a large portion of the population, it can descend into a blood feud spanning generations and forcing entire families into confinement.
The purpose of this school that is now functioning in Shkoder in the north of the country is to give children a safe environment for Christian learning, to be fed, to leave the confinement of their home and to mix with children of the same age.
The objective of this walk is to raise sufficient funds to support 2 children for 1 year in the school. It costs £38 per month to support 1 children.
If you'd like to use this page to donate then that would be great but if you are a UK tax payer and would like to Gift Aid your donation then message Graham Jones and I can provide you with Living Hope Church bank details and our charity number.
Our walk starts on Monday 14th may but feel free to donate at any time.I hope this cause touches your heart in the same way it has mine and thank you for taking the time to read this and for your donation.
