Sarah’s blog 16/5/22
Yesterday, I still had a headache, although not as bad as on Saturday night. I decided not to do 10km on my bike yesterday and, although I feel a bit guilty about that, it was the right thing to do. I slept much better last night and am ready to carry on with this challenge until the end of May. I didn’t expect my body to struggle as much with just rice and vegetables…I thought the toughest bit would be being bored with what I was eating! If it wasn’t hard then it wouldn’t be a challenge! https://gofund.me/ca9c1629
This is an honest blog of my journey for the 31 Days in May to raise money to build a desperately needed school for the children in Ibuluma, northern Malawi. Cycling on my exercise bike for 10km represents how far the younger children are walking to school and back each day. Some days, I have been challenging myself further to cycle 15km.
Eating just rice and vegetables for the month of May represents what the children have at The Feeding Programme. I have swapped maize flour for rice. I am very aware that The Feeding Programme only runs once a week and that is the children’s biggest meal of the week. I am grateful to eat every day. I am grateful I have choices of what to eat every day. I am grateful to have food in my cupboards and fridge/freezer. I am very aware of how little the hundreds of malnourished children have. We are working hard to improve their lives through various projects all with the end goal being self-sufficiency.
I need your help and your support to keep me going with this challenge. The children need your support. Please donate to give the gift of education as this is the way out of poverty. Education should be available for everyone https://gofund.me/ca9c1629
