My story

[p]Hi all, December fast approaching I will heading out to india and doing the Sewa UK Rickshaw Run on December 10th 2019. [/p][p]I'll be taking the 3 wheeled wonder of India across 5 states in India starting from Kanyakumari and ending all the way up in Ahmedabad. We are raising funds for a cochlear hospital in pune, we are 90 drivers all striving to reach Ahmedabad on 22-12-2019. We are aiming to reach our target of £250,000. So the children can all hear, what we take for granted they can't.[/p][p]So come on people dig deep and donate it's for a worthy cause. Give a child a chance to hear. All proceeds go to the hospital. [/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]About the cause:[/p][p]Sewa UK are supporting Cochlea Pune to raise £250,000 to build a state of the art Swaranaad pre-school which will allow the Cochlea team to not only provide further support to current children but also allow the admission of more children.[/p][p]Cochlea Pune for hearing and speech has been a growing charitable trust who specialise in supporting congenitally born deaf children from the age of 0 through to 6 years.[/p][p]Through early detection and intervention, the Cochlea team has become the trusted charity for mothers supporting their children. Starting with just one centre, one teacher and one student the centre has now spread its message and support across rural areas of Pune through to Goa.[/p][p]The charity now supports over 125 children to help them hear and speak with the assistance of over 35 teachers, hearing aids, providing speech therapy and most importantly through the specialist Swaranaad pre-school. The children learn language, mathematics and general knowledge. The Swaranaad pre-school encourages and gives each child the confidence to join mainstream schools and continue their education.[/p][p]The Cochlea team’s efforts and the Swaranaad pre-school has made it a beacon of hope for many families and children suffering. Last year they admitted over 22 children to the pre-school which has continued to grow.[/p][p]With the rate of admission, the Cochlea team have run out of room and they need your support now.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Ways to donate:[/p][p]You can use this page to donate or you can text 70470 with one of the following:[/p][p]Text DEAF5 to donate £5[/p][p]Text DEAF10 to donate £10[/p][p]Text DEAF20 to donate £20[/p][p]SEWA to donate £5 each month[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for your support.
