Poverty

PENNY APPEAL

Main aim of the charity

"We take small change and make a big difference with it. Penny Appeal was set up in 2009 to provide poverty relief across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa by offering water solutions, organising mass feedings, supporting orphan care and providing emergency food and medical aid. Since then we have transformed lives and empowered communities around the world, helping to break the poverty cycle and build brighter futures. Our work and our teams have grown considerably in the past few years, allowing us to launch many new campaigns and work in even more crisis-hit countries."

How the employee got involved and why

I'M NOT SOMEONE WHO LIKES WASTAGE. I HAVE SEEN / WITNESSED MANY, MANY PEOPLE WASTING WATER. AS A BODY BUILDER, AND SOMEONE WHO LIKES TO STAY ACTIVE (I HAVE TRAVELLED TO COUNTRIES WITH WARMER CLIMATES, SO I UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER). I HAVE BEEN PROMOTING THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER FOR OVER A DECADE SINCE I DECIDED TO EMBRACE A MORE HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE. I ALSO ONCE GAVE A SEVERELY DEHYDRATED CAT SOME WATER IN 38 DEGREE TEMPERATURES A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. IT RARELY EVER RAINED SO THERE WAS NO WATER ANYWHERE AS IT HAD DRIED UP WITHIN MINUTES.

What work does the employee do for charity

I MAKE DONATIONS AND OFTEN TIMES MAKE CONTRIBUTIONS TO BUILD WATER PUMPS TO THOSE WHO REALLY NEED THEM. SO FAR, I HAVE HELPED BUILD AROUND THREE WELLS TO THOSE THAT REALLY NEED THEM Religiously speaking, Muslims shouldn't really advertise their charitable deeds, but personally, this is for awareness

Big hearts change the world Big hearts change the world
