Story

On Saturday 13 May, I will be setting off on a cycle event to raise funds for ECRAD. ECRAD is a Scottish charity which provides support to alleviate suffering and deprivation in Malawi brought about by the HIV/Aids virus. ECRAD funds a daily feeding programme for 120 orphans at the Zioya Orphan Centre, Malawi.

My event will involve a 100km road circuit over 2 days on Isle of Mull. The island is very beautiful but can present a testing environment for amateur cyclists like me. Day one will have a particularly demanding route on the west of the island and includes a height to climb of over 1,400m. 

The funds raised are really important.  I will be visiting the site in Malawi in July as part of a volunteer group. This will be a really good chance to see the positive impact that our funds will have on the local community. I want to make it clear that I will pay for my own expenses for this visit so that ALL the funds that I can raise from my cycle will go to the benefit of those in need.



Empowerment Counselling Relief & Development

The main areas of our charitable activity involve raising funds for the work of ECRAD in Malawi. ECRAD Malawi activities concentrate on services which promote Empowerment of local people, Counseling, Relief and Development. ECRAD is a Christian charity and shares the Christian Gospel in word and deed, working in Malawi with orphans, street children and people whose lives have been adversely affected by HIV/AIDS.
