11 Oct ChaCha Team
What amazing girls! The ChaCha team succeeded in its challenge of a return swim across the English Channel to raise funds for victims of obstetric fistula in Ghana, Gambia and Ethiopia — some of them, young women whom they have met on Rosey Humanitarian trips. Not content with this, last weekend saw the same team swim the length of Lake Geneva from the Château de Chillon to Geneva’s Jet d’eau Fountain in 23 hours and 30 minutes. The ChaCha team, led by Theodosia, has now raised more than 100,000 francs, meaning that hundreds of young African women can be treated and cured. What is more, a four-year midwife training course will be set up so as to favour prevention across Ethiopia.
Bravo Ludmilla and Thoedosia! And well done their friends. They have shown courage, determination and been true to Rosey’s motto in the most extraordinary way: Actis Virtus — only your actions show what you are. We are extremely proud of them.
