Our Story

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! 

Running a marathon is by far the most daunting prospect for either of us. The mere thought of spending hours on end running what seems like a never ending track is enough to evoke a sense of apprehension.

However for the sake of these poor children we are hoping to run a marathon - in Marrakech!

The fact that the both of us are competing against each other complicates this process further. A current regular topic of discussion at our dinner table is which parent is most likely to win, with most bets placed on Khalil, to Firdaus' dismay.

Jokes aside, the money raised will go towards rescuing street children by uniting them with their families, or if this isn't possible, ensuring their safety. You can't get a better cause than that! So come on, dig deep, it's for a great cause! Thank you! 


To survive on the streets children are forced to beg, steal or trafficked into bonded labour or sexual slavery. ‘Rescue a child’ enables our trained outreach workers to find vulnerable children who are either abandoned, lost or assimilated into gangs. They are rescued into our shelter where we start the healing process.
