The Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon is a six-stage, seven day, self-supporting race through the Kalahari Desert, South Africa, across 250km. I am running to raise money for Humanity Direct. Humanity Direct works with several hospitals in countries including Uganda, Tanzania and Somaliland where many families can’t afford even basic medicine so being able to afford an operation is out of the question. Many delay seeking medical care until the condition worsens or get into debt they can never repay.
I am hoping to raise enough money for Winnie, age 13, to have her operation. If I raise enough money for Winnie and my page is fully funded, any further donations received flow over into the Humanity Direct Universal Fund, which allocates funds for urgent medical care when needed.
