The poor in India are suffering from the coronavirus lockdown.


Many have lost their jobs. Many are unable to afford food and other essentials.  Many are homeless. Many are separated from their families. Many are forced to walk hundreds of miles in the scorching heat just to get back home. Some have even taken their own lives. They are terrified and distraught.

 That is why, we are launching the #CAFI 5K challenge.


What is it?

Participants will walk/run 5km, share it on social media with the hashtag #cafi5kchallenge, tag at least 5 friends to take up this challenge and donate a minimum of £10.
