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
