Celebrating the contribution of our community through the 10K Fun Run in Folkestone over the past years!
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Folkestone 10K coastal Run is postponed to the 6th of September, we hope you will still be able to join the race then and support our cause.
CELEBRATING THE CONTRIBUTION OF OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH THE 10K FUN RUN IN FOLKESTONE OVER THE PAST YEARS!Thanks to all of the very generous people who put on our Green Kordofan T. Shirts in the spirit of sports and support for our aim to bring fun and normality into the lives of young people in Yida Camp, by taking part in the coastal fun run and other charity races in the same spirit each year!
COVID-19 has made it very difficult for some of our activities to continue this year, but your love, donations and energy continues to keep us going, so many thanks to everyone who takes part.
We would like to celebrate you all, by sharing photos from the latest 10K run in Folkestone and also give a big shout of thanks to all the organisers and sponsors for their support and good deeds too!
Football still brings renewed hope
Kuko lives in Yida refugee camp he is from the Nuba Mountains and wants to be like Messi. This interview was conducted by David who is Kuko's football coach in the camp.
Kuko lost his arm it had to be amputated after a bomb fell on him and the people he was with, they ran for cover under a tree and he woke up in the hospital.
Kuko like many children from Sudan have been displaced. He joined Green Kordofan in 2017 and it has given him something to make himself feel a bit better and given him dreams to aspire to.
We are not asking for much just a bit of support so we can help support amazing children like Kuko. 23,000 children live in Yida refugee camp alone but there are many camps all full of Sudanese and South Sudanese children in need of basic human kindess.... The joy that Kuko gets from playing football cannot be measured many will never leave the camp and many will be forced out when they reach 18years of age
