We at Vitalise have been really moved by the current situation facing Christians and other minority groups in Iraq and other surrounding areas. According to latest figures it is estimated that 1.2 million people have been displaced by ISIS with some figures suggesting that an estimated 400 thousand of those people are Christians.
On the 31st of August our team of Vitalisers will be cycling a total of 400 miles in one afternoon to raise money for those affected.
1 afternoon, 400 miles, 6 exercise bikes and lots of Vitalisers
we would like you to sponsor us whatever you are able to – all money raised will go to Open Doors’ Iraq Emergency Appeal.
Every £70 we raise can provide an emergency family relief pack for a family of four for one month.
