DONATE TO OUR 9TH ANNUAL run4change EVENT AND HELP ELIMINATE MOTHER-TO-CHILD HIV TRANSMISSION IN MOZAMBIQUE
The running part may be over, but we still need you to help us collect donations! With support from the Rotary Foundation, 200% of your donations go toward the good cause.
Thanks to all participants – runners, joggers, walkers, rollers, etc. Congratulations to all who managed to finish the option for runners local and abroad as well as those doing the family option “Kids helping Kids” to help instil the value of helping others. We hope you enjoyed the in-race entertainment.
As well as last year, all proceeds from the 2021 event will be used to provide medical care and nutrition for DREAM by Community Sant’Egidio’s project aiming to prevent transmission of AIDS from mother to child in Beira, Mozambique!
Hardly recovered from 2019 cyclone Idai Mozambique’s second largest city Beira was struck by another cyclone in January 2021 – Eloise. As many as 400 000 people in Beira and surrounding areas might be affected. DREAM Beira is acting as a shelter for the wider population in addition to its primary mandate to prevent mother to child HIV transmission.
With the proceeds from our 2020 charity run, we were able to benefit from a district grant of CHF 10k to double the positive impact for the community. The total funding provided to DREAM Beira came to approximately CHF 24k. You can read more about how Rotary Zurich International keeps the DREAM alive at Beira at the Rotary Foundation webpage.
