Andy, Ken, Martin and Steve and last minute friends completed their 100 mile bike ride on Saturday 20th June to raise funds for a new Clinic in Romogi, South Sudan. You can still sponsor them at https://my.give.net/Ride4Romogi
The route was mostly within Oxfordshire and approximated the outline map of Africa! They left Abingdon just after 8 o’clock and arrived back – through torrential rain – in time for tea!
The goal is to raise £5,000 towards the cost of rebuilding a Primary Health Care Clinic (PHCC) in the Diocese of Kajo-Keji. The previous Clinic was destroyed during the civil war some years back and needs to be replaced. The need in South Sudan – the world’s newest nation – is enormous. It is reported that one in every seven women will die of a pregnancy related problem. Maternal mortality is the worst in the world and infant mortality not far behind.
Ken (perhaps the least experienced of the team) writes:
These legs weren’t made for cycling
But that’s what they’re gonna do
Cycle 100 miles ’round Oxfordshire
So I’m looking for sponsorship from you!
