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 June 15th, 2020 by walking, skipping, jogging, roller-blading, cycling, pogo-sticking -- whatever it takes! As we share our stories on social media, we strengthen our connections, have fun, get exercise, raise awareness, and significantly help vulnerable children!

We have already kept almost 200 families from starvation since the COVID-19 pandemic began. That’s nearly a thousand people! Imagine what we can do with more funds!
Once the pandemic is settled, we will resume the ongoing work of whole-person care to the vulnerable kids we love in the townships surrounding Mbombela, South Africa. More about Reachout to Africa.
