Well, it’s been just over a year since I started working at penny appeal and have officially signed up to my first of many (I promise) challenges. And if you know me, you’ll know I enjoy a good challenge and am an adrenaline junkie.
I’m excited to be doing the MUDNIFICENT 7 challenge where I will be getting dirty with the rest of the team. I will be running, walking and climbing for 7km, while completing obstacle courses throughout.
The challenge is in aid of Penny Appeal’s Emergency Response Appeal. Our teams are currently providing support and aid in:
Indonesia - Over 2,000 people have lost their lives after the coastal city of Palu was rocked by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake. This was then followed by a volcanic tsunami, killing over 400 people and leaving thousands seriously injured
Syria and neighbouring countries - where refugees are battling to survive.
Yemen - where civilians are targeted amidst conflict, faced with famine and struggling to receive medical treatment for Cholera.
Myanmar - where Rohingya communities are being persecuted.
Palestine - where people are living amid conflict.
Bangladesh - Helping victims of the Sunamganj Floods and providing essential aid to Rohingya refugee.
Mozambique - where 1.8 million people have been devastated by cyclone Idai
So please donate what ever you can help me raise funds for people in need. 💪🏼
