Silicon Connection is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of World Vision’s inaugural Race for Relief to raise awareness and funds for the Hunger Crisis that is currently affecting 22 million people in East Africa due to drought and conflict. 3.5 million children under-5 are already acutely malnourished as families are starving and running in search of food, shelter and water.
In South Sudan humanitarian situation reports indicate continued general insecurity, limited access to food and basic services, violence, rape and abuse of women and girls, arbitrary detention and indiscriminate killing and destruction of property by armed forces as reasons for fleeing their homes.
The Race for Relief run/ walk will take place on 15 July 2017 at 5 pm, Stadium Riverside Walk, and we aim to have 1,000 – 1,500 runners for this urgent cause.
We hope that you and your friends and family members can join World Vision for this meaningful event.
Thank you very much for all your support and help for the vulnerable children who are desperately in need of relief aid.
