Where we are now.
Last year you very kindly choose to help people living with cancer in Kenya, by supporting my big bike ride. With your help I ended up raising an incredible Kshs 15 million shillings (just over £100K), which, as you know has been channelled towards the new Faraja Cancer Support Fund.
It is difficult to explain just how important this work is; already saving many lives and reducing much suffering.
As an early supporter, I am committed with keeping you fully updated on how this work is travelling, and it’s impact. As such you are one of the first people to receive our ‘All About’ brochure, which is actually being printed this week.
If I can ask you to sit down with a cup of tea, and read it from cover to cover – I think you will be really impressed! In just five minutes you’ll see how much has been achieved to date, and what the next steps are. It also touches about some real-life stories about children and adults whom have been helped recently.
In Kenya, we are about to launch a large scale campaign to encourage individuals, companies and grant making trusts to support this project with significant gifts. As one of our international friends, I would be really grateful if you could pass this on to anyone who maybe in position to consider supporting this campaign in your country.
The goal is to raise a total of Kshs 100 million (£675K) within two years. I am delighted to say that through both online/offine donations and pledges, we have reached the Kshs 40 million mark (£270K )…..so nearly half way. Some early adopters such as Nakumatt, East Africas largest supermarket, have wholeheartedly belive in this work which has made a big difference.
Full details an can be seen here www.globalgiving.co.uk/projects/farajacancersupportfund (which also has a link to the brochure as well) or of course I can be contacted on email@example.com
Once again – thank you so much for being a part of making this happen, you helped to get us this far.
