Self Help Africa says a big seasonal ‘thank you’ to our incredible supporters.
This Autumn alone, in excess of 1,500 friends lent us their support – attending and participating in events and challenges – and in so doing contributing almost €1,000,000 to support our work in Africa.
That’s an unbelievable amount, and to all those involved we express our heartfelt gratitude.
The picture collage above is just a small fraction of the faces who helped us in so many ways in just a few short months since last Summer.
If you look closely you may be able to spot an Olympic gold medalist, star of one of the most successful ever TV shows, a sports presenter, former Miss USA, international rugby star, TV talent show host and many more – farmers, lawyers, chefs, students, hoteliers, authors, bankers, restaurateurs, journalists, brokers, business owners, designers, engineers, teachers, doctors, photographers- even a rap artist !
To Kenyan world record holder and Olympic champion David Rudisha, to Soprano’s star Vincent Pastore, to former Miss USA Nana Meriwether, to British and Irish Lions rugby star Sean O’Brien, and to the many others who lent their backing in 2013 – we say ‘Thank You.’
At Self Help Africa we’re indebted to those who’ve helped out, and made 2013 a very special year for us, and more importantly for many rural poor households in Africa.
