Redivo' family is launching this campaign to all our friends and connections who want to participate in raising funds for the Ruhija Little Angels Orphanage in Uganda.
The campaign is linked to Francesco's participation to the upcoming 10 km Oceanman Open Water Swimming competition in Dubai on Saturday March 12! This is a major challenge as he estimates to complete it in approx 3,5 hrs!
To learn more:
The orphanage hosts 140+ children and it's situated in the Uganda Bwindi Impenetrable National Forest - a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located at an altitude of 2,340 m asl.
We traveled to Uganda for tourism in June 2019 and we met the amazing team working in the orphanage and many of the orphan children from 4 yrs to 14yrs old. Since then we are trying to support them as much as we can. We are in close contact with Happy Kyoherwe, the orphanage founder, director and foster mum, who updates us regularly on how the children are doing and also how the money are used. The main needs are always protein food like meat and first aid medicines.
Take a moment to visit the website we created: https://happymission.org/
Thanks a million for your generous donations.
Elisa, Francesco and the kids
What a tough swim!
Challenge is completed after more than 4 hrs of open water swimming, circling Burj Al Arab twice!
First loop was fine while the second loop felt never ending. What kept me going was the admirable purpose of this whole event: fundraising for the Little Angels orphans in Rujia (Uganda).
At this moment, we have raised about 48% of the target we have set.
I did my part, how it is time for your parts! :)
