Charity Registration No. 1111819

Story

In the year I am 50 I am running a half marathon in Rwanda on behalf of Msaada (www.msaada.org) a charity which supports the widows and children of the Rwandan genocide enabling them to rebuild their lives through self-sustainable development projects and education. We have supported Msaada since it's foundation 5 years ago and this is wonderful opportunity not only to raise money but also to raise the profile of the charity. 

All money donated goes directly to the projects, nothing is lost in administrative costs.

The impact your donation will have is succinctly expressed by  Archbishop Desmond Tutu who wrote about Msaada:

"Rwanda is a beautiful country with beautiful people……They need help to heal and to prosper. I am delighted that Msaada is raising funds to help Rwandans help themselves. It is a wonderful investment."

Many, many thanks
