Along with all other charities, Covid-19 is presenting Busega Scotland with unprecedented challenges; from keeping the Mayega children safe and increasing costs in Tanzania, to raising enough funds to meet our existing commitments.
We are facing a loss of income of about £1200 from fundraising in the first half of the year and we do not know what the ‘new normal’ will then allow us to do. Understandably, local, and national grant making organisations are concentrating on the situation here without the capacity to look overseas.
Could you help?
• Regular donors may feel able to increase their donations or supporters may wish to become new regular donors. One-off donations can also be made. All this by clicking https://busegascotland.co.uk/donate-now/
• Alternatively, you may wish to sponsor John walking 15 miles on the Edinburgh Kiltwalk in September, using the following link https://edinburghkiltwalk2020.everydayhero.com/uk/john-8 (the Hunter Foundation will add 50% to any donation you make)
• Maybe family, friends and workmates can club together, using spending that cannot take place due to lockdown – work travel costs, the coffee shop, meals out, hairdressing, sporting activities, cinema etc and make a joint donation.
We appreciate that the current situation can impact adversely on supporters’ incomes and fully understand if it is not possible to help.
With all good wishes from Busega Scotland.
