Vara Prasad, Principal of St Mark’s School , also looks after 30 widows and a nearby leper colony, and his wife, Sunitha, is having 12 weeks of chemotherapy for severe, aggressive cancer. This couple and their team are incredible, so providing them with the resources they need to give help will ensure we can make a difference for those in dire need. I want to make sure our provision is immediate, so I am doing this challenge to raise immediate funds.
I am going to be walking 5k a day from the 10th of May, for five days. I have just started my training to learn how to use a white cane, as I am totally blind. If I was holding someone's arm, 5k wouldn't be a challenge for me at all. But, navigating this distance, after only two training sessions, will definitely be difficult. Not only will this be a mental challenge, but my white cane with a ball on the end is actually fairly heavy. So, gripping and holding it with an outstretched arm, 25k over five days won't be as easy as it sounds.
I know the pandemic has been difficult for us all, in so many different ways, but the poverty our much-loved friends are facing in India is beyond the comprehension of us in the Western world.
I would be deeply grateful if you could sponsor me and please give whatever you can.
