Hike 4 Hope

This Saturday I am participating in a 10Km hike to raise funds to build a community medical clinic in Mityana, Uganda. Thousands of children are dying everyday from preventable diseases: the leading two being Malaria and diarrhoea. 

A work colleague recently established the charity 100% hOPE to provide ongoing support for this small African community in Uganda. 100% hOPE is bringing a hope and a future to Africa's most vulnerable by developing self sustainable communities. It is a non-profit registered charity run by a group of volunteers. All funds raised through this event will go directly to the building of the medical clinic. The goal is to raise the $10,000 required to establish this much needed clinic... hard to believe that this is all it will take to make a difference to hundreds of lives. 

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

If you would like to support me this Saturday in the hike (or in visiting Uganda) then please feel free to message me for further details. Cheer me on with your encouragement, together we can make a difference.

What an amazing endeavor for both the person who has started this and for you to do this hike! Praying for y'all as you do this and for the people who will receive the care!

This is wonderful! I pray that many participate and for those in Uganda who are in need of medical care.
