During the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to taking adequate preventive measures, people also actively maintain good health, such as eating more nutritious food, drinking more water, and doing more exercise.
However, our poor friends overseas do not have a solution. Their governments lack the resources to deal with the impact of the pandemic, and they are also unable to help themselves. In order to support our friends overseas maintain good health and resist the pandemic, CEDAR Fund is glad to announce a new fundraising event – the “We Move” Challenge. We hope that while encouraging more local people to do more exercise through this challenge, we can show our support to our friends far away and help them overcome the pandemic.
CEDAR invites our companions or poor friends overseas to film videos on exercise training. Participants of “We Move” Challenge can access to these videos that will be uploaded on CEDAR’s Facebook and YouTube for 5 consecutive days from 3 November to 7 November. Participants are requested to follow the training and work out for 5 to 10 minutes a day. We encourage participants to appeal to your relatives and friends in joining this challenge and raise fund to assist the poor from fighting against the pandemic. The donations will be used for CEDAR’s poverty alleviation projects in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
