Weʼre raising £600 to by running a half marathon to help raise money for Maher, a charity that helps support the lives of abused woman and children in India.

At the end of October I'm running a half marathon to help raise money for Maher, a charity that helps support the lives of abused woman and children in India.
Mahers mission is to identify and understand the root causes of violence and despair experienced by women and children in India.
Whilst trying to understand this problem, they have provided a sanctuary for those suffering from neglect and abuse where they can live in peace.
Here' a trailer to the documentary made about Maher which was created by one of the volunteers who stayed there:
Some of the stories I heard about whilst staying here include:
- Children who have been sexually abused and disowned by their own families
- Children with no families
- Woman escaping from violent husbands
- Babies that had ben left on the road in plastic bags
- The disabled and mutiliated, who have nowhere else to go
- The elderly who have no one to care for them
This is a great charity, and provides support to some of the most impoverished communities around India.
In a highly religious and multi cultural country, Maher will take in anyone regardless of their backgrounds an believes, letting them stay in a sanctuary where they can learn and live in peace.
Please donate what you can, this is my first fundraiser and really hoping to be able to hit our target!
