Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Small Steps For Embeth


--by petroskryf, posted Nov 14, 2019
My husband and I participated in a 10-kilometer (almost 7-mile) Peace Run and Walk, as a part of the Cape Town Marathon to raise money for an organization named Ithemba. This is an organization we started to raise awareness on depression and its research.

We lost our daughter almost nine years ago, and every walk on this hike, was for her. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), next year, depression will be the second biggest illness in the world; and in 2030, the biggest. We did this for our daughter, Embeth, who passed away in 2010.

It was a day of goodwill, and many people from various countries around the world participated in this event. We even received medals. Kindness really starts with small steps.
