Challenger Profile


Karen Palmer

Challenge Date:

27th - 8th March 2020

My Challenge:

Kilimanjaro Trek




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £2,365.00

Offline Total: £250.00

Gift Aid: £531.25

I have been blessed to visit Compassion supported projects in Rwanda and Colombia and have seen the wonderful work being done on the ground. I’ve spent precious days with my sponsored children and I will carry the smiles and laughter with me forever. Both trips were a mix of emotions, some extreme highs and extreme lows. I met with families in their homes living in desperate poverty. But I also heard the amazing testimonies and success stories of young adults who were once sponsored children.

Compassion projects really work, I’ve seen it with my own eyes, and that’s why I’m taking on the biggest challenge of my life! All money raised will help fund Compassion Tanzania initiatives and release more children from poverty.

(I am funding the trip myself so all donations go directly to Compassion.)
