Event description

Description

Join Muslim Charity as we embark on the Marrakech Run in aid of our Children of the World campaign. The Marrakech Run is one of the world's greatest running events. The backdrop of an ancient city and the wonderful sights and sounds presents a unique opportunity for all levels of runners. The half marathon will snake through the roads and boulevards of Marrakech while you are cheered on by hundreds of spectators and runners from around the world.

The team - #MCCREW

By running as part of #MCCREW the sponsorship money you raise will help us to rescue street children in Bangladesh. There are an estimated 500,000 street children in Dhaka, Bangladesh who have either been abandoned by their families or trafficked into child prostitution.

The Cause

With our outreach workers we are able to work with children and rescue them into our shelter in Dhaka. It’s there that they are given the protection, love and care that they so much deserve but also enables us to tend to their medical and psychological needs.

Where possible and safe we reunite some of the children with their families but only when we are confident that they are safe and not at risk. Where a child’s parents or guardians cannot be located they are then transferred to a permanent home where they are given food, shelter and education.

As part of our work with street children we have an informal school which provides elementary education as well as enabling us to engage with the children and tend to their first aid and medical needs.

We can only do this amazing work with the help of volunteers and fundraisers like you. So keep on supporting Muslim charity so we can help rescues as many children as possible from the streets of Bangladesh.
