My name is Fynn Graham-Nye and I am 10 years old. I am going to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for Every Mother Counts.
Sadly, 1 out of 39 women in Tanzania dies from giving birth. When the mother dies, the father can't make milk so the baby ends up in an orphanage. I visited Neema Baby House in Arusha and half the babies are there because their mother's died giving birth to them. The crazy thing is that 90% of these deaths are preventable if they can get basic health care. For just 50 cents, you can save a mother's life because that is how much a taxi costs to get her to a basic health center. Put another way for 50 cents these kids don't have to be orphans.
I can't image growing up without my mum, or my family, so I want to help be the change. Ghandi said "be the change you wish to see in the world", so I want to do something. Please help by donating to my climb or by joining my “500 in Change” team and do your own walk on June 22!
