Story

How about it! This June I’ll be running a marathon just outside the Masai Mara Nature Reserve in Kenya for Compassion UK.

I need your help to hit the fundraising target so I'll post various events and opportunities on this page.

You can donate on here or if you sponsor a child with Compassion, £750 is added to my fundraising total!!

Even though there’s great need in Kenya, I'm focusing my attention on Compassion's work in Nicaragua, Central America where 12% of the population live on less than 66p a day.

Ever since I visited Compassion’s work there in 2012, I have fallen in love with Nicaragua!

Rachel and I sponsor Katherine and Andru who live in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua and I have also ridden from Lands End to John O’Groats to build extra classrooms at this Compassion project. This is why we would love for you to join us in transforming this specific community through sponsoring a child or donating to this specific Compassion project in Managua, Nicaragua.

Please see the photos of children at the same project as Katherine and Andru looking for someone to sponsor them and give them the chance to go to school, have annual medical check-ups and hear about Jesus.

Nicaragua is one of the poorest Central American countries because of nearly two centuries of dictatorships, civil wars and natural disasters. The country is slowly rebuilding its economy, but mismanagement, corruption and still pose serious problems.

Thank you.

Darren
