Walking the Pilgrim’s Camino to Santago di Compostela
Our ever-resourceful President, Nigel Fawkes writes:
“My wife, Jane, and I are currently (as you read this) are walking the ancient pilgrim’s route, the ‘Camino’, for seven days across Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela to raise money for Malaika Kids.
“This is a children’s charity which I helped to set up and chaired for many years before becoming its honorary President, so I know at first hand the caring and valued work it does rescuing orphans and very vulnerable children in Tanzania, one of Africa’s poorest countries.
Malaika Kids has won several awards and has as its Patron, her Excellency the High Commissioner for Tanzania who writes: “I express my appreciation and that of the Government of Tanzania for the work Malaika Kids is doing to assist orphaned children.”
Broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby says: “I am very impressed by the work of Malaika Kids… This is a really well-run young charity with a dedicated team of volunteers… please do all that you can to support them.”
Malaika Kids needs to raise over £200,000 a year – all from private donations – and is proud and committed to keeping UK costs at under 3% through the application and generosity of our trustees and volunteers.
Your donation will be spent wisely and the benefits will be long-term, as previously destitute children are educated and trained to become independent, employable adults.”
