MBS wants to raise £5000 to support students take part in the run and inter school competitions. This will support with sports kits and facilitation. 

Acholi sub-region which was once a vibrant and leading community has been reduced to a tragic shadow and shell of its former self due to over 20yrs of civilwar.

The traumatic experiences have left lasting psychological scars on the mental well-being of individuals in Gulu, leading to high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. 

Your donation will go along way to helping rebuild resilience and psychological recovery in Northern Uganda.
