Story

Last November, Myself and Jason Doherty were part of a group that visited Zambia. Throughout this trip we had the privelidge of meeting the inspirational children from the Cheshire Childrens Homes. The spirit and resilience of these children had a great effect on us, and we want to raise as much money as possible to help improve their lives. Because of this, on 4th November myself, Jason and over 100 other participants will be taking on the challenge of Turf Warrior (10km obstacle course in Killary harbour). The proceeds of the event will be going towards supporting the children in the Cheshire Children's Home in Zambia, a project that Alan Kerins and the team in Gorta-Self Help Africa have been supporting for over 10 years. There are over 1,200 children with disabilities under the care of the Chesire Home. Surgical interventions are provided together with prosthetic limbs and a care plan is in place to include nutritional, medical, educational and developmental goals for each child. Provision of prosthetic limbs are fully dependent on the availability of funds and each year approximately 100 children are provided with surgery. The money raised will help to support these children through surgery and provide  aftercare to ensure these disabled children have the same health, educational and job opportunities as others in society. Any support you can provide will make a huge difference. Thank you!
