Run Media City - the power of words can change lives in Iraq
On the 27th June 2019, Hussein Al-alak and Tracy Hollowood are taking part on the Run Media City 5K, to aid the ongoing work of the AMAR Foundation in Iraq.
This is the second time Hussein and Tracy have taken part on the 5K, around Salford's Media City, and they are inviting you to support the AMAR Foundation.
Your support will assist AMAR's efforts in health, education and much more! You can also help by introducing your friends, to the many incredible changes, which the AMAR Foundation are making across Iraq.
One positive change AMAR has made, is the School for Orphans which the Foundation built in Basra in 2016. Up to 30% of the school's children have lost both parents, the school has modern facilities and it provides a broad curriculum, so children get the best start in life.
You can sponsor Hussein and Tracy - by donating £8.99 to the AMAR Foundation - which is the equivalent of one copy of On the Road, by US author Jack Kerouac.
As Iraqi's are known for their love of great literature, you could also use John Steinbeck's words to inspire Iraq's future generations.
By donating the cost of your favourite book, you will be helping the AMAR Foundation to provide a high standard of education, to children and young people across Iraq.
