Tecknuovo’s Thames walk for War Child
War Child & Afghanistan:
Earlier this year, we announced War Child as our first official charity partner. War Child works to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children living in war zones. They have been working in Afghanistan since 2002, but following the recent regime change has launched a specific Afghanistan appeal. Despite the instability in the country, War Child has remained on the ground, working against the clock to provide safety. More than 400,000 people are presently displaced with food insecurity reaching emergency levels. An estimated 3.5 million people in Afghanistan requite urgent humanitarian assistance, in which more than half are children.
What Tecknuovo is doing:
We want to do more than just donate money. We wanted to create a company-wide initiative that would engage the entire organisation. On the 29th of October, a large number of the Tecknuovo team are planning to walk 25k across London, whatever the weather! Starting at our HQ and walking along the west bank of the river into Central London. Our aim is to raise £5,000 to support War Child’s work in Afghanistan.

As part of our effort to better understand the impact of the funds raised, we will be inviting Ash Alexander-Cooper OBE to speak with the Tecknuovo team. During his 7 years of deployment, Ash led elite forces in some of the world’s most complex and hostile environments, having first-hand experience with the value of donations like these. Ash is currently directly involved in the rescue operations occurring in Afghanistan.
If you would like to join us in our efforts to support Afghanistan, please visit our Just Giving Page. Individually we can all make a difference, but as a company we hope that a collective effort helps us to collectively raise more.
