Fish for Hunger 2017: Results

Standard

It’s been a few weeks now since our fishing frenzy charity campaign for 2017 came to a close. Since then we’ve been calculating the final amounts and coordinating the donations with our charity partners.

Now we can finally announce that you helped raise an incredible $135,846 for Action Against Hunger and Islamic Relief!

We are thrilled to be able to pass this on to such great causes, and want to stress our gratitude to you all for taking part and making this happen – thank you all again for another great campaign. It will make a huge difference to the lives these organisations work to improve, and we even had fun along the way – we hope you did too!

 

Where the donations go

You may remember that last year, some of our staff made a visit to India with Action Against Hunger to see what projects the previous year’s funding was supporting. Earlier this year, another Action Against Hunger field trip was made by some other members of our team, who were please to see what a difference it was making. Much of their work focuses on community education, hygiene and, in particular, tackling child malnutrition.

Islamic Relief deal with many similar issues, but a key area the Palringo funding has gone to is around providing clean water to areas in most desperate need. This includes large drilling and plumbing projects to deliver water to thousands of households, which otherwise would have had to walk miles to access water.  

Our contacts from Islamic Relief have been kind enough to share some pictures taken in the field from different parts of their work.

So, thank you again for your participation, the money raised makes a huge difference to all the projects it touches. For more information on the charities involved, take a look their websites, Action Against Hunger and Islamic Relief, and get to know more about what they do.
