Tom Waldron 5k Run raised €2,050

The Tom Waldron 5k Run/ Walk  held on Tuesday August 15 in aid of Claremorris based organisation ‘Protect the Children of the World’ raised a total of €2050 to support its work in Kitui, Kenya.

The money raised will help children avoid long hours of forced labour and give them an opportunity to get back into full-time education.

Since 2012 Kitui Development Centre, a non-profit organisation based in Kitui Kenya, has opened its Rescue Centre to cater for children removed from the worst forms of child labour.  Kitui, in Eastern Kenya, has the second highest rate of child labour in the country.
