My Story

Hello friends! I'm doing the Sydney Marathon on 17 September. I will be running and raising money for the UNHCR (or the UN Refugee Agency) which is dedicated to saving and helping refugees around the world. If you would like to donate please just head to this link: https://donate.grassrootz.com/…/a…/jimmy-meegans-charity-run If you are interested in how effective Australia for UNHCR is as a charity, please just head here for a full assessment. http://www.changepath.com.au/australia-for-unhcr#scoring Also, full disclaimer, if I raise $500 for UNHCR then my entry is free to run the marathon (normally $140) but if I raise that amount then I will donate my entry fee to the UNHCR as well :) Thanks heaps and happy running x

About my cause: Australia for UNHCR

Emergency Response

Support from donors allows UNHCR to go straight into action.

When violence erupts and disaster strikes, support from donors allows UNHCR to go straight into action. UNHCR is often first in and last out in a refugee crisis, able to have staff and supplies on the ground within 72 hours.
 
Our emergency response mechanisms include contingency planning, mobilising global stockpiles of relief items and the immediate deployment of teams of trained personnel.
 
Ongoing Care

UNHCR aims to improve the quality of life of all people in its care, including the long-term displaced.

This includes providing special protection services for women and children, and ensuring all refugees access to healthcare and safe shelter. UNHCR also coordinates education and livelihood programs to help people develop the skills they need to achieve self-reliance and maintain hope and dignity.
