Gorazde Children's Foundation
Armstrong Wolfe's official charity
GCF Bosnia directly supports Goražde Primary School in central Bosnia.
To date, we have successfully built the school its first English language classroom and library and have also refurbished its previously war-scarred playground so that the children can play sport on it again. We regularly send books and educational materials and have established a student exchange programme with The Elms Preparatory School, Malvern, Worcestershire, UK.
Our next project is to build the school a fully-equipped science classroom, meaning that the children can take their learning from the theoretical to the physical, bringing science to life for them. At the same time, we'll renovate a further six classrooms in dire need of modernisation.
In 2019, a team of aging riders undertook a 100km cycle ride across the Bosnian mountains to raise funds for this phase of investment. Accompanying this effort, proceeds from the 2018 release of Donkey Mail and Bully Beef has added on going funds to GCF Bosnia.
In June 2020, to mark the 25th anniversary since the 1st Battalion, The Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment on UN duty left the war torn city, a team of 25 riders will cycle from Sarajevo to Gorazde to raise further funds.
GCF Bosnia was founded by Maurice Evlyn-Bufton in memory of four of his comrades who lost their lives whilst on UN duty in the Bosnian War 1992 - 1995.
There are 39 million blind people in the world, but 80 per cent of blindness could be prevented or cured. That’s 31.2 million people who are blind when it could have been avoided.
Sightsavers is an international organisation that changes lives for the long term. They work in more than 30 countries to eliminate avoidable blindness and support people with visual impairments to live independently.
Through Sightsavers, a child cataract operation costs £50, but whatever you can give will help restore another child’s vision.
We support the charity’s contention that no child should go blind from avoidable causes, but if they do, we can help restore their sight. £50 is not much in today’s world, but giving sight for one child would be a gift for life.
Sightsavers is one of the three charities that have benefited from the proceeds raised by the 2017 release of No Place to Hide, the role of the banking Chief Operating Officer and the 2018 release of To Catch a Thief, the evolution of the Chief Control Officer.
