Adrinette Maartens' S4J Challenge for 2019

Adrinette Maartens' S4J Challenge for 2019

Personal message

I have decided to use the Comrades 2019 season to raise funds for the children of the Nuba Mountains.  There is a great need for learning resources in Sudan currently. There is a school, in this area where S4J works, with 900 learners that is in desperate need of a basic science laboratory.

Many of the Sudanese children will not have what our children take for granted.  A picture that comes to mind is of a young barefoot Nuba boy in a refugee camp. He had a handmade bag in his hand – probably with one book and one pen inside. However, he had a big smile that said: “Here I come, world!” The willingness of these kids to learn is truly inspiring.  Children will walk far and sit in makeshift shelters under a sweltering sun, but they will come.  They appreciate every opportunity to learn.

Please keep these children in your hearts and prayers.  You can make a difference by contributing any small donation (closing date 9 June 2019) to help make this dream a reality for the Sudanese children.
