I am embarking on solo bicycle ride from Amsterdam to the World Cup Football in Qatar. This journey has multiple goals and ideas behind it. However, my main objective is to raise donations for refugees. Why?
When refugees flee their home, they leave everything behind: family, friends and belongings. Waiting to return home in safety or be resettled to a third country can take years and in the meantime, refugees wait. Education and employment are hard to find, frustration sets in and the talent and potential of young people is wasted.
Several organizations provide refugee communities with basic necessities such as shelter, water and food. However, all of us, irrespective of our circumstances, have hopes and dreams beyond just survival. This is where KLABU sees an opportunity to add value to a refugee's life by supporting the unbeatable spirit through the power of sport.
Hence why, I am raising donations for KLABU!
