Personal message

I completed my Camino in May/June 2023 and the experience was so much more than what I expected.  However, that does not end our fundraising efforts and this account will stay open and we will continue to raise funds to secure premises for the Queen Butterfly Foundation. Please open your hearts and help us to ensure that the school can keep their doors open for the children who desperately need the care they are given at Queen Butterfly Foundation. 

The Queen Butterfly Foundation is a stimulation Centre which caters for children and young adults with profound mental and physical disabilities during the day, Monday to Friday. Individualised therapy programs are developed for each child and sustained through one-on-one interaction to help the child elevate their functionality and increase their enjoyment in life.  They have a very low staff-to-child ratio and maintain small numbers of children in a class as most of the children are incapable of independent movement and require individual, hands-on assistance and care. 

Being a non-profit organization relying completely on donations with absolutely no government funding, they are in desperate need of funds to purchase their own premises in Roodepoort. They are currently using classrooms at a Church which they have to vacate every Friday and then return on a Monday. 

I am taking Queen Butterfly Foundation under my wing. I will be hiking a portion of the Spanish Camino - Camino De Santiago in 2023 and decided to dedicate my Camino to contribute to their sustainability through helping the Queen Butterfly foundation secure much needed funds. I will be doing 320kms of the French Way from Leòn to Santiago De Compostela.  My journey will begin on 21 May 2023 when I will be flying out from OR Tambo International Airport and will end on 16 June 2023 when I will be returning to South Africa.  I aim to raise much needed funding for the Queen Butterfly Foundation and ask that you please support my efforts as I crusade courageously for the cause. Just a note - I will be travelling and hiking on my own, having never been overseas before.

Absolutely all funds raised as a result of my hike will go to the Queen Butterfly Foundation as I am covering my own expenses for this journey.
