My story

[p]We are supporting the local charity MapAction and here's what they do:[/p][p]At a time when charities throughout the UK and around the world are being severely impacted by big drops in fundraising income caused by the Corona virus, MapAction is busier than ever before.[/p][p]We’re helping national governments, the UN and humanitarian organisations across the globe make rapid sense of the COVID-19 pandemic and plan the best response, to save the most lives and minimise the long-term impacts.[/p][p]Managing a pandemic of this kind requires the rapid collection and analysis of vast amounts of data. Without maps and data, those responding to the crisis are effectively blindfolded. This is where MapAction’s help is crucial. Our expertise in humanitarian information management and mapping is hugely in demand, as we face a global crisis of unprecedented scale. We’re having an impact, right at the heart of the world’s response.[/p][p]At the same time, other humanitarian emergencies that existed pre-Corona, or have occurred since its onset – such as Cyclone Harold and the Syrian refugee crisis – require our urgent assistance too.[/p][p]Like all charities, our funding has been affected by the COVID crisis. That’s why we’re asking all our supporters to take part in the MapAction 2.6 Challenge.[/p][p][b]The Challenge[/b][/p][p]You can do anything you please as long as it is active or using a physical skill and involves the number 2 and 6. You must also make sure you adhere to government guidance and social distancing measures in force where you are. Here are a few ideas: [url=][/url][/p][p]Take a picture of you doing your challenge (videos and GIFs are also welcome, but make sure you include at least one photo) and upload it to your google classroom.[/p][p]Donate whatever you can afford – to MapAction via this Virgin Money Giving page. [/p][p]And that's it, you've done your bit. [/p][p][br][/p]
