Hi my Name is Dan Law – I’m running the London Marathon 2015 for Disability Africa - a charity started by my dad, which helps disabled children in African countries.
I recently visited The Gambia in West Africa and saw for myself the incredible hardship that disabled children and their families face on a day-to-day basis.
We are building a centre to support these children in the village of Gunjur, in West Africa. There are 27,000 people living in Gunjur and about 1,200 of them are disabled children.
Because we are passionate about inclusion, a big part of what the centre will offer (aside from education and medical support) will be a fully accessible playground where all kids disabled and non-disabled can be together.
I am hoping to raise £3,000 which will help fund this play-ground.
