Weʼre raising £500 to Running the Manchester 10K run with my nephew Steven Lomas in aid of Bwindi Orphanage in Uganda.
- Manchester, United Kingdom.
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.
John Katutsi was so affected by the homeless children in Nteko, Uganda, that he decided to build an orphanage and free school, which is so desperately needed. Orphaned due to poverty or Aids, many children are living on the street, with the dangers that poses. I became friends with John on Facebook, heard his story, and was so affected by his story that I promised to help him raise funds. The money will go towards clearing a plot of land and start the foundations to the orphanage building.

These children have lost their parents through Aids, poverty or just being abandoned. Please give any amount, large or small, and make our efforts worth while.Thank you. (bwinditrustorphanage.org)

About the fundraiser
Manchester, United Kingdom.
In a poor area of South West Uganda, where children are without homes, school, or enough to eat, a Orphanage and school is desperately needed. Some of the poor children are Batwa or pygmys, from families removed from the Bwindi Forest when it became a National Park.
