Each year, the Who is Hussain central team fundraises for a particular cause, and on 26 June 2022, 16 runners will take part in a half-marathon at Richmond Park in London. The Sprint for Sight campaign is supporting Sightsavers’ work in Pakistan, helping people like Sardar access vital eye care services and treatment to protect and restore their sight.
Who is Hussain empowers people around the world to organise activities for charitable causes, including fundraising events, blood donation drives, and distributing food and clothing. The charity is named after the Islamic Prophet Muhammad’s grandson Hussain, who stood by his principles and demonstrated selflessness.
To support the runners and help Who is Hussain reach its target, you can make a donation via the JustGiving page.
Sightsavers began working in Kenya in 1952, when blindness affected up to 7% of rural Kenyans.
Sightsavers has been awarded $16.9 million to continue and expand its deworming work, after a funding recommendation from US charity evaluator GiveWell.
Sightsavers has partnered with the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance to help make the hospitality sector accessible to everyone, with a particular focus on Africa and Asia.
