At FTI Consulting Brussels, we don’t like to leave things half-done. We believe that with persistence we can achieve extraordinary things for our clients and the communities around us. We also believe that each one of us has the passion to change what we don’t consider fair. Above all, we believe that together in a team we can accomplish more than what we can individually.
That is why the FTI Running Machines team of 31 consultants, family and friends will join the race at the Brussels Belfius Marathon and run a total of 283km to continue our support for a children’s home in Gondar, Ethiopia. Our ambition is to support Embrace Foundation by raising at least 10 EUR per km. So 10×283 EUR = 2,830 EUR!
The funds we raise will go to the home of 16 former street boys that started a new life earlier this year thanks to all your support at the 2015 edition of the Brussels Belfius Marathon. The children now have their own bed, eat three meals a day, have new clothes, go to school and have fun with their step father, mother and big brother. In order to sustain their new situation and start building a better future, the boys need our and your continued support.
Our FTI Consulting Running Machines will raise and donate to Embrace Foundation (www.foundationembrace.org ), a not-for-profit organisation started in 2013 by Jurgen Mortier, another FTI Running Machine. Embrace Foundation supports a local NGO Yenege Tesfa in Ethiopia (www.yenegetesfa.org ). Their mission is to provide Gondar’s orphans and vulnerable children with a happy family life.
It would mean a lot to us if you would consider supporting us in this endeavour. 100% of the money you donate will go directly to the education, food, and clothes of the children. Contributions can be made online at chuffed.org .
