We're committed to providing food parcels to orphans , vulnerable youth and their caregivers during this pandemic. We have no idea when this will end but we know we care for these children and we believe that you care as well. Reachout to Africa has been raising money for vulnerable children in South Africa since 2005. We usually gather to fundraise. We usually send teams from Canada to support Hope Camps. With COVID-19, we had to get creative! The distance from Vancouver, Canada to Mbombela, South Africa is a distance of 16,500 kms (10,000mi). We Since we can’t fly, and we can’t gather to fundraise, let’s #WalkToAfrica2020! Let’s together accumulate that massive distance between now and July 15th, 2020 by walking, skipping, jogging, roller-blading, cycling, pogo-sticking -- whatever it takes!
A lot of supporters are asking, “What’s the connection between walking 16,500 km to Africa and raising funds?”The #WalktoAfrica2020 challenge is a COVID-19 safe, joint fitness activity across nations to bring us together, increasing awareness and building relationships, expanding our supporter base, and meanwhile asking for donations. Besides your generosity, one of the best ways you can support our long term work with vulnerable children in SA is to SHARE our posts. Questions? Comments?
