Kenya has recently announced it will be closing its refugee camps, essentially condemning thousands of South Sudanese refugees to violence, disease and/or death back in their home country. Our team is raising money to build homes for and transfer South Sudanese women and children to a safe community in Ethiopia before the Kenyan camps are closed and they are sent back to South Sudan.
Our goal for this run is to raise $6,000, enough money to rescue 6 women and children; including all costs associated with building new homes in Ethiopia, transportation from Kenya, medical aid, food, clean water, and farm animals.
BY JOINING OR DONATING TO OUR TEAM, YOU CAN HELP SAVE THE LIVES OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN NEED. (You will also be entered into an AMAZING raffle for dinner for 2 at Del Frisco's and luxury cosmetics)
