Refugee Week 2020 Challenge

Why we need your help

As part of Refugee Week 2020 between 15th & 17th June a team of residents, volunteers and staff from Abigail Housing will be 'virtually' climbing Erta Ale. 

Erta Ale translates in Amharic into 'Smoking Mountain'. It is an active volcanic mountain in the Afta region of north eastern Ethipoia and is 613m high or approximately 805 steps. Our team will be carrying out this challenge in their own homes, gardens or local parks. Walking up stairs, walking up steps on the spot or doing star jumps. We will be  recording our activity with short films and photographs.

Our challenge symbolises the mountains refugees have to climb to reach safety and sanctury in the UK. Hopefully it will encourage people to imagine and think about the difficulties refugees face when they seek safety and protection, both on their journey and when they arrive here.

We are asking people to donate a minimum of £2. All money raised will be used to support the destitute asylum seekers Abigail Housing works with.
