Rally Round Africa

In support of CARE Canada

Dear Friends,

Once more I am embarking on an adventure in the resilient 1930 Ford Model A Cabriolet automobile, which has been properly restored after the demanding "Road to Mandalay" Rally.

This time the journey spans a large portion of the African continent, from Dar-es-Salaam over some 7,000 km to the finishing line in Cape Town.

I am lucky to be joined yet again by my ever reliable co-pilot, Gary Anderson. 

I am honoured to use this rally as an opportunity to raise awareness for CARE Canada and possibly also to raise significant funds in support of their charitable work.

CARE is close to my heart. In my childhood in the early years after World War II, when I was a rather destitute and stateless political refugee in Europe, I myself was a direct beneficiary of its food package program.

Should you wish to make a donation, your gift will help CARE support poverty-fighting projects that provide safe education, health care, sustainable food, clean water, life-saving emergency assistance, and economic development opportunities.

I shall be very pleased and grateful if you would join me in supporting the worthwhile work of this organization. It is very easy: just click on the "Donate" button to the right and in a few steps, you'll be there.

As always yours,

Enrico (Harry) Dobrzensky

– Your donation will support the Southern African Nutrition Initiative –

Malawi, Mozambique, and Zambia continue to have some of the highest child mortality rates in the world, much of it attributed to malnutrition.

CARE’s Southern African Nutrition Initiative (SANI) is designed to give families and health providers the tools they need to alleviate malnutrition in children under five and in pregnant and nursing women. The project addresses the inter-related causes of malnutrition, including women and children’s access to food resources, food insecurity, lack of dietary diversity, poor sanitation and lack of nutrition education.

Your gift will multiply impact! This initiative is in partnership with Global Affairs Canada – CARE must raise $2.1 million from the public to leverage the full commitment of $21.1 million from the federal government.

Malnourished women are more likely to die in childbirth or have low birthweight babies who themselves are more vulnerable to disease and death. Chronically malnourished children suffer life-long consequences in cognitive ability, school performance, and future earnings. CARE knows that addressing malnutrition today can bring economic benefits 100 times greater than the cost of interventions.
