The Reason
Children desperately need your help
Millions of children’s lives are being torn apart by war across Yemen, in Aleppo, Syria and Mosul, Iraq.
Many have watched their family and friends killed and maimed in front of them.
They live under siege, denied food, water and medicine – leaving them at risk of disease and malnutrition.
And in the chaos, they can become separated from their parents – alone, afraid and vulnerable in a warzone.
Save the Children’s teams are on the ground doing whatever it takes but they need your help to do more.

Your New Years Resolution
If you resolved to get fit, meet new people, start a new hobby or help others then this is for you.
Why not join up with others in your area through our Swim for Children in War Facebook page and do it together?


NB:
Complete your swim marathon between 1st January – 31st January 2017
This is a virtual challenge event, to register it please pay £20 + EtchRock fees of about £2.20
All funds raised (apart from some minimal admin costs) go to Save the Children.
