Fundraising for an Orphanage Centre in Tanzania

Thousands of women and men will this year be running the VHI Flora Women Mini Marathon to raise money for various charities. 

Dubliner Edna, a published poet and journalist who works in the banking sector and originally hails from Tanzania, will be running for the Amani Orphanage in her home country. Edna is the acting chairperson of the Tanzanian Society in Ireland.
