Rhian’s story

In the past 6 months there has been an outbreak of a plague that is thought to be the worst in 50 years and scientists feared it could spread to mainland Africa and beyond. 

The spread of the disease was unusual in that most of those affected have had the pneumonic form of plague, which affects the lungs and can kill within 24 hours. It can be transmitted through the air via coughing and sneezing and so spreads easily. 

It is caused by the same bacteria that cause bubonic plague, and can also be spread by rats.

The disease can usually be treated easily with antibiotics but because the bacteria is constantly mutating, fears have grown about a strain that is untreatable.

Before antibiotics were discovered, plague killed more humans than any other illness. I am going to be abseiling down The Orbit, the highest structure in Britain, to raise money for Hoveraid. Hoveraid is a great charity that reaches out to people who live in remote areas in Madagascar with life saving provisions. Hoveraid have spent the few last decades reaching the unreachable, providing regular healthcare, emergency aid, water, sanitation and community health projects, mostly with a hovercraft, because they can fly over floods with ease. But we need your help to reach more people!

I'd be really grateful if you could sponsor me with as little of as much as you are able to give, or just come along and support me!


Updates


The HoverAid Trust

HoverAid work with remote communities in Madagascar where hunger, disease and a lack of clean water affect the health of millions. HoverAid reach unreachable villages when Africa floods, providing relief organisations with access to those most in need.


This year we've already treated more than three thousand people living communities far away from roads. We've also cleaned wells and provided water purification kits, rice and seed to hundreds of families affected by the three cyclones this year.


We'd love to do more, and whilst it sounds glib, it's absolutely true, that we can only achieve what we do with you as part of the HoverAid family!

Registered Charity Number: 1005977.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
