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.
Myself, Olly Fawcett, Jordan Grace, Sul and Damian Ipser are going to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in under 24 hours to raise money for our Innovation:Africa Project. It involves 13 hours of climbing the three tallest mountains in the UK and 11 hours of driving, so it definitely will not be easy. I hope that with your help we can raise enough money to change the lives of the people that rely on this medical clinic.
Innovation: Africa is a charity which provides solar energy to rural medical clinics in Africa. It allows the clinic to have life saving equipment which will help thousands of people. With every £5 raised, 2 lives will have been changed for the better!
The Kidiogzero Medical Clinic is one of Innovation: Africa's projects which is very similar to the one we are sponsoring. Below is some of the amazing impact it's been making!
Kidigozero Medical Clinic - Total Impact: 6600 people
Dr. Joseph Ngamila and nurse Ashura work 24 hours a day to provide medical care to over 7,000 people. Without electricity, when a patient came in at night for emergency medical care, nurse Ashura would hold a kerosene lamp over the patient while Dr. Ngamila treated their wounds. Births were performed by the dim light of unsafe and unsanitary kerosene lamps. Now, innovation: africa has installed 240 watts of solar energy, powering a solar refrigerator and ten light bulbs. Not only is the clinic well-lit at night, but outside lighting ensures that patients can find the clinic at night. For the first time, the doctor and nurse can properly store government issued medicines and vaccines, and treat their nighttime patients with the safe and sanitary healthcare they deserve. Since the installation of the solar refrigerator, over 2,000 children have been vaccinated against preventable diseases.
This video is from the Nansanga Medical Center, Uganda. A clinic very similar to the one we are sponsoring. With your help we can make this happen!
We are also very excited that Waterrower UK is our official sponsor for our Three Peaks Challenge! We will be using their equipment to get us ready for this savage 24 hours!
