I first became aware of the KCF when my good friend Lynne Mosher visited Kumi with Wheels for the World about 3 years ago. I followed her journey and was so impressed by the amazing work that her team were doing in Uganda that when I had the opportunity to go to Kumi myself in February 2020 I jumped at the chance. I had never been to Africa before but I instantly fell in love with the people of Uganda - I definitely left a peice of my heart in Kumi!!! I was blown away by the work that Elspeth and the KCF were doing to support disabled adults and children in Kumi and was lucky enough to go out with Elspeth and Harriet on a community visit. This really brought home the importance of their outreach work in rural Uganda and the desperate need of the people for medical assistance and support. I was determined to continue to support the work of this amazing charity so I am so excited to be part of the ‘Million Steps’.
Throughout the month of June ,5 members of the Kumi Community Foundation fundraising team will be walking One Million Steps to raise money for the charity.
Elspeth Robinson, Lynne Mosher Michele Herdman, Hannah Meeson and Lynne Williams individually will keep track of the steps they have walked and together we hope that by the end of the month they will add up to 1 million steps.
We will track our steps using pedometers, Fitbits or Apps on our phone and we will share regular updates with you so you can see how we are doing.
Everyone involved has visited Kumi and seen first hand the amazing work that is done.
