My story

[p][b]10 years ago[/b] I travelled with over 40 Cranbrook School students to Tanzania with the FUM charity, helping with their work to improve conditions in local villages. [/p][p]Since then, the link between the school and the FUM charity has continued.[/p][p]FUM is a small charity working in the Tabora Region of Tanzania, specifically in the Districts of Nzega, Sikonge, Urambo and Kaliua.[/p][p]This year I will be [b]running the Virgin London Marathon for FUM[/b], with the aim to raise money to provide a reliable supply of good quality water to the [b]Ibambo Clinic and Health Centre[/b]. I have only been running for two years and I have never run a marathon…[/p][p]The Centre opened in Easter 2018, running a limited service for local villagers, however full service will only be possible when there is on-site accommodation for medical staff and a [b]reliable supply of good quality water[/b]. [/p][p]The plan is to [b]construct a large underground tank to store rainwater[/b], similar to the tank at (fairly) nearby Nyasa clinic. This will cost around £10,000 and this is what I will be raising money for. [/p][p][b]Poor quality drinking water is a major cause of diarrhoea, the second most common ailment after malaria and the cause of death of an estimated 30,000 children each year in Tanzania. [/b][/p][p]Please give whatever you can to support this worthwhile charity.[/p][p]Please note that FUM is a very cost effective organisation with more than[b] 95% of donations spent on projects.[/b][/p][p] [/p]
