What are we doing?

From Monday 12th until Friday 16th May we aim to eat on €1.21 each per day in order to raise awareness about extreme poverty & raise funds to change lives in one of the poorest countries on the planet. 

The 121 challenge was inspired by the global Live Below the Line movement and is being led locally by the NGO Amplify. This challenge aims to bring into focus some of the experiences of the 1.2 billion people around the world who live in extreme poverty. 

At the same time the Amplify team aims to collect funds to continue to support a medical centre which the group set up in Cambodia in 2008 and which continues to transform the lives of some of the poorest people in the world.

Amplify set up a Medical Centre in Kampot, Cambodia back in 2008/9. This centre has now been running for a number of years, providing free consultation and medicine for, amongst others new mothers, children and young people with disabilities. The centre is doing great work but still needs some assistance as it strives to become more sustainable. We hope to be able to support it through funds raised during the 121 Challenge! PLEASE BE GENEROUS!
