CARE International UK

We at CARE International, fight poverty to help the world’s most vulnerable people.

Charity Registration No. 292506

Story

We are 'Ramboll Racing', aka Team R&R after last years success of winning the CARE Construction Challenge which involved us trail running 10 miles (16km) across forest, kayaking 1.2 miles (2km) and cycling 15 miles (24km) along the coast. We thought we would do it again. This time we are hoping to hold onto our crown and win again, however it will be tougher this year with more teams entered and competition from within our own company.

The money we raise will go towards CARE International who provide:

·         emergency shelters for victims of natural disasters or war

·         construction of disaster resistant buildings

·         construction training for local communities

·         water and sanitation relief and support

Shelter is never more important than in times of crisis, however when emergencies such as earthquakes or flooding strike, many people lose their homes. For poor vulnerable families, a house can be their largest asset, and the loss of a house leaves them exposed to ill health, poor security, indignity and poverty.

CARE run all their events in-house therefore all the money we raise will go to the projects. Please support our cause.
