Kalantha's Barefoot Walk

Having been so touched by the plight of the fistula patients of Ethiopia upon hearing their story, Mrs Kalantha Brewis of Eckington, Worcestershire, decided to undertake a similar ordeal here in Britain to raise money and awareness.  She is planning on walking barefoot - as the women of Ethiopia do - from her home in Eckington to the Birmingham Women's Hospital in Edgbaston, Birmingham, a distance of 35 miles.

The walk will take place over 4 days from 9 June to 12 June 2010.  She will be hosted overnight by various churches along the route and will also be making scheduled stops for lunch, where you can meet her, talk to her and give her your support.  Trustees of the Charity will be on hand at the lunch stops to help give out information and tell you more about the work at the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital.

Even if you are not able to come along and meet Kalantha, you are welcome to support her efforts by donating to her site:
