Lucy's Kolkata orphans appeal

The hope foundation is a registered chairity working with street children in India. We work to free children and poor families from lives of pain, abuse, poverty and darkness.

Living on the streets, children are exposed to horrendous physical and sexual abuse. Those who survive are left to fend for themselves, with no promise of a safe future for them. They are forced to work from as young as five years of age to earn money for food and so cannot go to school. HOPE works to free them from child labour.

The Hope Foundation was first set-up with a vision to fund one home for girls. Seeing the on-going huge need to create safe and nurturing shelter for children at risk, our protection work continues to grow providing counselling and education as well as meeting physical human needs.

I am hoping to raise €3,000 to support these Hope projects in Kolkata through a sponsored swim. My aim is to swim the distance between Alexandra College and the Indian Embassy (10km - 600 lengths of a pool). 

Thank you for your generosity
