In the spring of 2021, our former chairman and extremely loyal supporter, Myke Jacobs, began the impressive journey of walking the distance from London to Rome in the grounds around his home!
As part of his challenge, Myke has been completing laps of a local communal garden, aiming to walk over 2.6 million steps and ‘virtually’ reach the city of Rome.
During his journey, Myke has shared monthly updates to those subscribed to his e-newsletter, detailing his ‘virtual visits’ at every milestone, alongside the positive impacts of his supporters’ kind donations. So far, Myke has reached the 6th and penultimate milestone of his 7-stop journey, which involved ‘passing’ through cities including Paris, Lyon, Turin and Genoa.
We’re hugely grateful for Myke’s efforts and encourage any final donations as he enters the last leg of his journey.
Myke’s fundraising amount currently rests at 72% of his target amount!
The situation still remains serious in Nepal – and these funds will make an enormous difference to the children and families supported by our programmes. Our incredible teams of staff and workers have worked tirelessly to ensure that children, young people and their families have been supported throughout the pandemic.
As the country begins to recover from the devastating effects of Covid, we remain committed to providing these communities with the educational, financial and pastoral care they need and deserve.
Last year, we supported over 10,000 children through our work.
Currently, 61% of Nepal’s total population has been vaccinated, and recorded new cases in Nepal are now minimal and well below 1,000. According to the World Health Organisation, there were only 59 new cases reported on 13th March. As schools reopen this year, vulnerable children are set to receive more robust support, and school years have extended until May to allow all affected pupils to catch up on their education.
A huge thank you to Myke and everyone who has supported him on his epic journey so far. Wishing Myke the best of luck as he enters the final phase!
