Project Report | May 6, 2021
"When can we come?"

By Susanne Koch | Project Development Manager

Our women’s fitness project has been running on full capacity for the past several months. Due to Covid-19, we have had to limit the number of participants and as people keep coming to ask about our classes, the waiting list is growing.

It is incredibly hard to turn people away, some of whom struggle with medical conditions and have been told to exercise by their doctors. However, it would be just as hard to tell the women who have been coming and have become a community, that it is time for them to give other ladies a chance as well.

During our break for the month of Ramadan, a number of the ladies have started meeting up to go for walks in the camp at 9pm. It is good to see that the women remain connected and support each other in times when we can’t meet together as a group.

With your support, we have decided to launch a second class as soon as possible, providing an opportunity for another 25 ladies to exercise twice a week, to be encouraged and to build relationships that provide support.

Thank you!
