St Peter's Life-Line is a small, grass-roots charity, working in the impoverished, drought-prone area of Kajuki, in rural Kenya. Survival in this fragile subsistence economy depends entirely on the twice-yearly rains to grow their daily food. The April/May rains failed, meaning food prices are rising and St Peter's Scholl may have to close prematurely due to financial pressures.
The next rains aren't due until October/November and in the meantime the St Peter's Life-Line feeding program is essential to provide a simple, daily, nutritious lunch to over 1,500 pupils in seven local primary schools. The impact of the program is huge: encouraging attendance; improving attention; enhancing learning and improving the health of the pupils and their families.
Just £20 provides all these benefits to one child for a whole school year. I'll be digging VERY deep to keep running/walking for 24 hours - can you dig even deeper to support this community in dire times?
