All over the world, innocent children are suffering in one way or another. Some are starving. Some have no families. Some are homeless and have no safe place to sleep at night. They live in a state of constant fear and unhappiness.
This year several individuals, couples and families will be embarking on the spiritual journey of walking from Najaf to Karbala to commemorate Arba’een. These people from different parts of the world will unite to complete an 80km walk through war-torn Iraq from the holy city of Najaf to the land of Karbala. They shall walk for three days during the daytime with the scorching desert sun bearing down upon them and they will rest in the evenings in makeshift tents, when the blistering cold takes over as temperatures rapidly plummet.
Many will also be taking this opportunity as a chance to assist the N2K team raise funds to fundraise for a Community Upliftment Project in Northeast Kenya. This is a joint project between The World Federation and Africa Federation which aims to provide long-term, sustainable solutions to uplift communities and take them out of poverty.
The work in Northeast Kenya will include providing clean water and sanitation, investing in irrigation systems and farming techniques and giving basic educational necessities for children to learn. Such projects will impact on the lives of thousands of individuals, not just in those communities identified, but also far beyond.
We need your support
This year, the team is aiming to raise £137,000 towards this project. To achieve this goal, The World Federation, Africa Federation and the N2K team are asking for your support. All funds raised will be used to improve the water supply, food production, health, education and socio-economic status of the poor and needy in the Garissa and Wajir Counties or Northeast Africa and full details of the project can be found here
