The Mudeka Foundation Norfolk Coast Path Walk 23-27 August

Anna Mudeka, Trustees and friends of the Norfolk-based Mudeka Foundation are doing a sponsored walk along the full length of the Norfolk Coast Path, from 23 to 27 August, to raise money for the foundation, which supports Aids orphans and underprivileged children in the Harare area of Zimbabwe.

This project was inspired by the Trustees’ trip to Zimbabwe in March, when they visited schools and met children who have to walk nearly eight miles a day for the chance of having an education.

Elisabeth Louis, Mudeka Foundation Trustee, said: “We want to understand what it is like for these children who do not have any choice but to walk miles to school. But we also want use our expedition along the Norfolk Coast Path as an opportunity to raise more funds, so we can help more Zimbabwean children with their education.”

“We were deeply effected by the situation in Zimbabwe and are doing all we can to work with schools there. We are very happy to give talks about the foundation and explain how we support these children in need.”

For more information and to register to join the walk, or make a donation, go to Under 16s taking part in the walk must be accompanied by an adult.
