Team Solihull

Team Solihull are raising funds to upgrade pediatric facilities in Sri Lanka, for hospitals in need

Fundraising for International Medical Health Organization Imho Corporation
raised of US$30,000 target
by 5 supporters
Event: London Winter Walk, from 27 January 2024 to 28 January 2024


The Need

Kayts Base Hospital (on Kayts Island, off the coast of Jaffna) and the High Dependency Pediatric Unit of the Teaching Hospital, Batticaloa both have something in common – they have pediatric facilities that are not fit for purpose and in very real need of upgrading.

The Solution

We are fundraising to significantly enhance the pediatric facilities at these hospitals, and perhaps other hospitals, and looking to raise more than $120,000.

Your funds will greatly improve the quality of care and broaden access for the communities these hospitals serve.

Team Solihull is made up of members and associates of the extended Solihull School community. Some of us are taking on the full marathon 42 km (26 mile) ‘figure of 8’ London Winter Walk, on January 27 2024, whilst others are taking on a 1005 mile Virtual Mission around Sri Lanka. We would be very grateful if you would sponsor us, secure in our knowledge that your support will make a huge difference to many of Sri Lanka’s poorest children, for decades to come.

The facilities will be greatly improved in memory of Sonya Lynch (nee Penney), a pediatric nurse, who died of cancer at the age of 48 in August 2023. With the very generous support of family, friends, their schools, sports clubs and the wider community in Cork, Ireland, her three children have already raised over €30,000 ($32,000) of the $120,000 needed.

The HUGE Incentive

Every dollar, pound, euro you donate up to $30,000 will be very generously matched by IMHO USA. We would be very grateful for your support in helping us to reach our target by selecting your currency of choice.

*Please note that UK taxpayer donations will benefit from Gift Aid if they are made here:
