On the 26th April 2020 I will be taking part in the London Marathon and hope to complete it within 3½ hours! I am looking to raise £15,000 so that 40 Kenyan children who suffer from the club foot condition can access life changing surgery.

ROPE and their partners, Dreamland Mission Hospital, based in Western Kenya, have helped over 400 children in the last 5 years, but want to help more. In Kenya, children with club foot are viewed as “cursed” because of the “sins” of their mothers, leading to whole families being ostracised. The children are isolated, unable to play or enjoy a ‘normal’ childhood, left completely dependent on their families to care for them.

With the money raised, we can fund the total cost for the surgery and after-care for 40 children.

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider supporting me.

If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. 

ROPE Charitable Trust, London Marathon 2020

We believe God has a plan for every person living in poverty. These plans involve transforming lives physically, emotionally and spiritually. God delivers His plans through local visionaries living in their own communities. These visionaries have the insight and understanding to transform lives but need access to resources and mentoring. We partner with these visionaries to equip them to release God’s plans for His people. We operate a seperate fund called Friends of Rope to cover our UK administration costs, so 100% of your donation goes to support our partners' work.
