On Sunday 3rd July 2016 I will be taking on a physically daunting challenge, namely running the Great North 10K Run in Gateshead (whilst fasting 19 hrs)! Sounds crazy doesn't it?! Yes, I will have no access to water or drink and I will travel the 81 miles from Bradford to Gateshead the night before.
Hundreds of thousands of Syrian children have become orphaned because of the 5 year conflict in their country which shows no sign of ending. They have lost their parents to the conflict - many have witnessed horrific crimes a child should never witness such as their parents being killed in front of them.
During this Ramadan I am aiming to raise enough funds to support Syrian Orphans (ZAKAT APPLICABLE) for 1 year in SKT Welfare's flagship Springs of Hope Orphanage and Family Centre in the Turkish/Syrian border town of Reyhanli. only last month I visited this unique purpose built facility which will house eventually up to 75 widows & over 150 Syrian orphaned children. I personally saw the tremendous level of care the Syrian Orphans are receiving during my recent trip there delivering pre-Ramadan Food Parcels & toys for Syrian children. I met countless Syrian Orphans & have made it my mission to try & help them.

DID YOU KNOW as little as £20 per month will provide a Syrian orphan with food, shelter, education, healthcare & parental care?
