On 13 April 2019, my Mum & I are stepping out together to bring love to life through Walk My Way! The walk is being organised by Australian Lutheran World Service, the overseas aid and development agency of the Lutheran Church.
We are inspired & motivated to walk in memory of my Dad, Ellis, who throughout his life served & cared for others in many ways.
We’re going to walk the full 26km of the Women's Pioneer Trail from Hahndorf to Beaumont in Adelaide, in recognition of the long dangerous journey refugees must take to find safety - and to raise money to help send a refugee child to school at the same time.
It's only $26 to help provide a teacher, textbook and table for one pre-school child living in a refugee camp in Kenya, Djibouti, or Sudan. Many of these kids were born here, and know no other life. Some even arrived alone, without mum or dad.
We want to help in a practical way that changes lives - and we know we can do just that!
Thank you so much for taking action to bring love to life for these refugee kids, and supporting us in the Walk My Way challenge or donating towards the work of ALWS.
