On Sunday 17 July, I will be joining in with a bunch of Frum bearded men, as we cycle 100k from Wales to Manchester - please don't call the paparazzi!
Why? Well to raise funds for Aim Habonim.
Most of you will know that as a result of Chaya being born very premature, she has problems with her eyesight. But Baruch Hashem that has not held her back at all with her education; she goes to a regular school and joins in with her classmates.
However, there are other children born with more severe disabilities, sometimes life-threatening and always always life altering. These little children, with pure sweet Neshamot have been dealt a raw deal; the last thing they need is to have their education ruined as well.
Meet Rafi - aged 4.
Born with only the right side of his heart developed, he encountered many challenges, and together with his young family looked uncertainly towards the future. What kind of future would he have? Would their sweet son be able to learn, would he have friends, would he be part of the community or would he be shunned?
Then came the ray of light. Aim Habonim stepped in and for the last 2 years provided young Rafi with therapy. They prepared him, gave him the tools and education, so that come this September Rafi will join a mainstream school just like all his friends.
His future is now a lot brighter, thanks to the hard work, devotion and love of Aim Habonim.
Please help me to help them. Let us make sure together that no special child should be denied a proper education due to lack of funds.
