Miki would not say it, but she is a hero. When asked, this wiry 65 year old says, ‘I run marathons because I feel so much better for running – though training is a massive effort’. Running with old injuries, a bad back, and very uncomfortable plantar fasciitis probably is. Part of what keeps her going is to raise funds for charities like Romilly’s.
‘It is great what this small charity is doing. The children abandoned on the street lead a terrible existence, sleeping near the drains, infected by disease and parasites, vulnerable all sorts of abuse. Please help me to help Romilly help take care of them, trace what ever is left of their families, and get them back to school.’
Romilly currently helps to support Friends of Street Children (FSC) in Kitwe, Zambia. This is Romilly’s third project. Thanks to the great generosity of Romilly’s donors two dormitory blocks have been built there, a borehole sunk, a second hand van provided, and staff paid. In fact if it were not for the generosity of Romilly’s donors it is unlikely that Friends of Street Children would still exist. FSC is the only serious street child organization in the mining district of Kitwe and its continued existence is vital to the well being of these very vulnerable children.
