We recently made a donation of €1000 to the Mellon Educate fund, a very worthwhile charity. Pictured here is Martin Byrne receiving the cheque from staff member Stella Kehoe.
Here is just a small insight into what this great charity does:
Founded in 2002, Mellon Educate have built 25,000 houses, providing 125,000 Africans with new homes.
Every year, Mellon Educate organises their now renowned “building blitz” trip to Africa for volunteers from all over the world to travel and lend a helping hand building better infrastructure in poor African communities.
They have housed 125,000 local people in high grade permanent homes, replacing dilapidated shack living conditions. Since 2013, Mellon Educate has set about improving access to better standards of education in African townships.
To date, the charity has built 16 new schools and renovated many more, providing over 10,000 young children with a better chance at life. They are building towards educational programmes throughout Africa that will benefit over 100,000 primary school kids.
Sandra and Anne presented a donation today to Wexford Parkinson’s Association and Irish Cancer Society for €624. This was raised from the bake sale we held recently in our New Ross Office.
We would like to say another big thank you to everyone who kindly donated to both of these very worthy charities.
