The Million Kicks Challenge aims
The Million Kicks Challenge mobilises individuals, communities, governments, the corporate sector and academic institutions to take part with the main aim of raising money for charities and non-governmental organisations in order to help ease the suffering the refugees and IDPs, through a series of football-based initiatives, starting in London, United Kingdom.
The campaign is non-political and non-religious with the sole aim of supporting the refugees regardless of their ethnic, religious or social backgrouns.
All donations will go directly to the charities through online fundraising platforms.
Our current campaign is in aid of Syria Relief, to raise fund for artificial limbs clinics and mobile dental units. For more information please visit syriarelief.org
#StepForwardSyria aims to shine a light on the plight of an estimated 30,000 Syrian amputees whose conditions have resulted from the conflict. In addition to the loss and trauma that comes from being in the midst of a war situation, amputee victims are additionally burdened with facing a life of complete dependence, leading to the vast majority experiencing extreme feelings of depression and worthlessness. Tragically, many of these victims are infants and children.
Syria Relief has been helping wounded civilians to regain their mobility and rebuild their lives since early 2013, supporting the National Syrian Project for Prosthetic Limbs (NSPPL) comprising of 3 clinics (1 mobile and 2 permanent) located in Turkey and inside Syria. The state of the art limbs fitted at the clinics have enabled the vast majority of the patients to resume their lives once again and to work and play. Over the past 3 years, the prosthetic limbs clinics have successfully fitted over 1,000 prosthetic limbs on patients ranging from 9 months to 85 years old.
With your support, we hope to raise the much-needed funds to ensure that this project will remain fully functional for another year and continue to provide a high quality full care package from pre-op to aftercare free of charge.
“Until they can walk out of our clinics by themselves, ‘standing on their own two feet’, we don’t want to have to send back a single amputee who comes through our doors” – Syria Relief
Step by Step
Our target goal of £150,000 will cover the cost of the clinic for one year and indirect costs associated with the project.
