Wishing for sublime Cape Town weather on Sunday and no wind!
This Sunday (11th March 2018) myself, my husband Freds, Clive and Mary Silberauer, Jono's parents, will be zooming.. up the mountains and pedalling our way around the entire of the Cape Peninsula. It is the most euphoric ride, and we wanted to do it for our great friend, Jono Silberbauer who was the worlds ultimate missioner...evening windsurfs to Robben Island is pretty radical!
Jono past away last year, having suffered from Crohne disease but was shining his light all the way, and continues to do so. He always wanted to make children smile, so albeit a short countdown to when we hit the start line this Sunday, we would like to try and make the smallest difference for and on Jono's behalf, in loving memory of him.
'At Operation Smile we believe every child deserves exceptional surgical care. We believe all children deserve to be treated as if they were our own.
That’s what drives each and every one of us: our global network of medical professionals, who donate hundreds of thousands of hours toward the care of children around the world each year, and our supporters who are moved every day to make a difference in the lives of children they’ve never met.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. A child with a cleft condition has twice the odds of dying before their first birthday. Children with cleft conditions who survive may have difficulty eating, speaking, hearing or breathing properly. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can’t afford the surgeries they need to live a productive life'
