“All of the students are desperately needy and come from difficult and painful backgrounds.
“Many have lost parents as a result of HIV/AIDS, rebel conflict or endemic poverty, some of the students have suffered terribly as child soldiers and abductees and some are HIV positive. Kira gives them a hope and a future.”
There’s still time to sign up for the It’s A Knockout competition or help out by volunteering on the day.
