It was fantastic being a part of the ActionAid team. I felt supported all the way to race day.

Where your sponsorship money goes
Andhra Pradesh is one of the poorest states in India, and is affected by disasters such as cyclones. ActionAid has given training to children living in those communities to be ready in case a disaster occurs.
The children of Saladivari Palem have learnt survival skills such as swimming, how to make floats using local materials and resuscitation techniques. They have also learnt to deal with snake bites, because as water rises, the number of snakes increase rapidly.
