Story

"No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another."

Hello friend ! First, thank you for taking the time to check Rachid's fundraising
page.

Rachid is from Morocco. He works in GSK - Dubai as FLP Graduate and has been selected as one of 40 employees from 25 countries, spread across GSK’s business, and from all levels of seniority to take on this amazing challenge. Together they will raise £184,000 (or more) for Save the Children, which will be matched by GSK. In March 2019, we will spend a life-changing seven days trekking up to the 4,550m peak of Ras Dashen in the stunning Simien Mountains, and then visiting a local community to understand more about Save the Children’s work in Ethiopia. But his challenge begins now. He must start fitness training and, most importantly, start fundraising, and here I will need you dear friend.

Rachid says : "When I was young, I lived the first years of my life in a very modest part of Morocco. I still remember the expression of some classmates suffering from hunger when we shared a snack during the break and have witnessed friends dropping out of school because of poverty.For me, the future is determined by our youth; we should all get together and work on what matters most for them, including a good healthcare system."

10£ buys emergency nutrition formula, saving a child from fatal
malnutrition, 20 £ buys a clean delivery kit to ensure a safe birth for a
 mother and her baby, 50 £ will help provide life saving HIV/AIDS drugs
to 1 patient for a year. All donations will be matched and doubled by GSK (i.e if we gather 5000£ GSK will donate 10000£ to Save The Children). Your contribution matters to us, your contribution matters to children of Africa.

Thank you!
