FUNDRAISERS JUMP OUT OF PLANE FOR COME DIVE WITH ME

Eight brave fundraisers have jumped out of a plane from 13,000 feet to raise funds for disadvantaged refugee children in Jordan.

Volunteers from Kings College London University took part in “Come Dive With Me”, a skydiving event hosted by Human Relief Foundation (HRF), a registered international aid organisation.

With over £4,500 raised, funds will go towards helping build and maintain a rehabilitation centre within the Za’atari refugee camp.

It is one of the world’s largest refugee camps, and accommodates over 80,000 Syrian refugees among which are many orphans and disabled children.

Working alongside Jordanian authorities, HRF is hoping to build a centre and provide a space for children and youth with various types of disabilities including physical, sensory and mental impairments.

Mehdi Chowdhury, Senior Volunteer Officer, said: “Thank you to all those who donated and supported the cause, and thanks to all the brave volunteers from Kings College London University who took part in 'Come Dive With Me'. With exams around the corner, HRF wishes them all the best with their studies and wishes them all a bright future!”
