[p]Dear friends,[/p][p]On October 14th, I will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise money for Help Impact, a young U.K. based charity which is working to improve lives of children and young adults (under 25) worldwide. Learn more about them at [url=https://helpimpact.org/]https://helpimpact.org/[/url][/p][p]The first project sponsored in-hospital dedicated caregivers for children aged four years or less in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. These children are either orphans or children with missing/estranged parents. Imagine the mental and psychological state of small children left in hospitals for days without anyone taking care of them. Help Impact currently sponsors seven fully time caregivers to support such cases. [/p][p]The second grant provided much-needed medicines and nutritional supplements for children and infants in rural Guatemala. Help Impact is currently working with a small non-profit clinic in a rural part of the country. Malnutrition rate in Guatemala is one of the highest worldwide. 56.9% (!) of children under the age of 5 in rural communities are suffering from food insecurity. The cost of your lunch (£5) buys a a course of life saving antibiotics. Most recently Guatemala experienced a volcanic eruption followed by an earthquake seriously impacting the lives of up to two million people and highlighted the serious shortage of both food and medical supplies. [/p][p]Your donations will allow the charity to fund these and other similar projects in places where larger charities/NGOs funds don't always reach. [/p][p]I will be becoming a father myself early next year so these causes are very close to my heart. My wife Veronika is a trustee on the board of Help Impact. All past and future projects have/will go through appropriate due diligence process and funds have/will reach the intended recipients.
