Carol and Sarah Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge to Support CHW!
We are very grateful to mother and daughter, Carol and Sarah, for supporting CHW by climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge! This is not the first time Carol and Sarah have done a challenge for CHW. In 2013, they also did a skydive to support CHW, to help the children at an education centre in Romania that we work with. This time, they were supporting our Impact Fund, which allows us to respond more effectively to any urgent or unexpected needs at our partner organisations and also assists us in completing any projects that we are struggling to fund.
On their fundraising page, Sarah wrote:
“My Mum and I will be climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge to raise money for Children’s Helpers Worldwide… A few years ago my Mum was diagnosed with cancer. It made us realise how important it is for us to pursue our dreams and our ambitions while we still can. My Mum has always wanted to walk over Sydney Harbour Bridge and in March this year we will be doing it together…
All funds raised will be used as part of an impact fund which will be used when the charity is struggling to complete projects or when they receive an urgent request from one of their partner organisations. This fund allows for donations to go where they are most needed.“
Carol and Sarah, we cannot thank you enough for climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge to support CHW, and for all your help over the years. During this challenge, Carol and Sarah were aiming to raise £1000 and they went over their target, raising £1060!
The first beneficiary of the Impact Fund was Ismael in Argentina. He is ten years old and was born with Phelan-McDermid Syndrome. With the help of the Impact Fund, he has been able to continue with his equine-assisted therapy sessions at one of our partner organisations in Argentina, Fundación Cordobesa de Equinoterapia. Another beneficiary of the Impact Fund will be Isaac in Ghana. He grew up at New Life’s home. One of CHW’s corporate partners is currently sponsoring his tuition fees, as he attends Cape Coast Technical University to study Mechanical Engineering. Isaac also needed a stipend towards buying food and the Impact Fund will help with this.
A massive thank you to each person who sponsored Carol and Sarah and helped support the children and young people we work with! You are giving them a brighter future.
