Welcome to my give.net fundraising page for Smile Charity Uganda. I am doing a 75 mile cycle ride to raise funds for SCU's 'Crisis Centre,' which provides accommodation, food, counselling, skills-training and guidance to people living fragile lives in the Kampalan slums. On a monthly basis, the centre receives up to 18 victims of sexual /physical abuse or those who have suffered from life-threatening accidents such as severe burns and motor accidents. The centre also occasionally houses young people at risk of becoming homeless. . Another 12 vulnerable people come in during the day for ad-hoc guidance and support. Annually the centre therefore houses and supports an average of 360 people including women, young people and children. SCU takes a holistic approach supporting the whole family. Donating with give.net is easy and secure. 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.
