Cyclefor16

Hi, my name is Scott Kirkham and I am asking you to help me save the lives of 32 disadvantaged children here in Vietnam. These children suffer from congenital heart disease. They are in desperate need of lifesaving heart surgery organised by Heartbeat Vietnam, but sadly their families cannot afford the cost to save them. The lifesaving surgery these children need costs $1,200 USD per child, but the families of these children only earn $50 per month, without our help these children will die a slow and painful death and their families will have to helplessly watch.

With your help I want to prevent this from happening. To raise the money required for these 32 children to have surgery, I will cycle 1,600km in 16 days across Vietnam to save these 32 little lives. The ride will take place in September 2016.

My goal is to raise 38,400 USD for the surgery needed for these 32 children, every dollar and cent donated will go directly to these children for the surgery they desperately need. Together, hopefully we can raise more than this amount and save more children as there are hundreds of disadvantaged children here in Vietnam who are in need of this surgery.

Will you help by donating now? Together we can save the lives of 32 children in need.

Regular updates on our progress will be posted on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/cyclefor16

If you would like to know more about me, well, I am a simple guy who is a husband, a dad to two healthy young children (thankfully), and I just want to make a difference to help save the lives of some very sick children here in Vietnam.
