We all remember the inspirational Yusra Mardini: the 18-year-old Syrian refugee who competed in the 2016 Olympic Games. Despite adangerous journey from Syria to Germany, where she swam for her life in Greek
coastal waters, Yusra continued her passion for swimming and became a member of the Refugee Olympic Athletes Team.
It is girls like Yusra that Mercy Corps aims to support. Mercy Corps is a leading global organisation, working in over 40 countries, powered by the belief that a better world is possible. Our team has mounted one of the largest responses to the crisis in Syria, impacting the lives of more than 7.4 million people since 2012.
With your fundraising from the Quad, we can continue our work to help people across the world to reach their full potential. We hope that Yusra’s story will inspire you not only to fundraise, but to train hard for your Quad swim. Mercy Corps looks forward to seeing you in the waters of Loch Tay in July 2017!
