British student raises funds for Chennai-based prosthetic charity
Jennifer Pirie, a student in the United Kingdom, has raised 1,500 pounds for an Indian prosthetic charity.
She did this by organizing a race night, an event in which participants bet money on the outcome of recorded races. She held the race night to raise money for Chennai-based charity MUKTI.
Jennifer's university works with the charity to improve the delivery of prosthetic services in India by providing training, helping to develop improved prostheses and every year taking a small group of students to work in its clinic in Chennai.
Jennifer said that she had attended race nights for local football teams and knew they had always raised a lot of money. So she decided to hold a similar event for MUKTI.
