Sponsored River Walk in Aid of School in War Zone
Comboni Missionary sisters supporting orphans in DR Congo
The Chiswick-based Comboni Missionary sisters are holding a sponsored walk to raise money to help furnish a school for orphans in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo.
The walk will take place on Saturday, 10 July starting at 10.30am from Fulham Palace, Bishop’s Park and ending at Westminster Cathedral. There will be rest stops, lunch en route and stops at local churches. The route will follow a quite beautiful path along the river and is a 10km walk with a 5k option and other meeting points.
All proceeds raised will go directly to the Comboni School in Butembo. The Kivu Conflict, which gave rise to this project, is mainly for control over gold and coltan used in all our mobile phones and computers. The nuns aim to raise awareness of these struggles and support the St. Daniel Comboni Centre for Literacy and Educational Recovery in Butembo, North Kivu.
The Comboni Sisters of Chiswick are aiming to raise £7000 to buy desks and teaching equipment for a new school after being asked for help by the St. Daniel Comboni Centre.
