Why run the Royal Parks for Send a Cow?

Your £300 sponsorship could provide five families with life-saving hygiene training and skills, as part of Send a Cow’s response to coronavirus in rural Africa.

Our training equips families with the knowledge and skills to build a “tip tap” to help wash hands safely, harvest rainwater to use during the dry months and learn how to build a simple clean latrine. With your support, we can ensure that when this crisis is over, families will be in a strong and healthy position to build their own futures from the land.
