Help the children at the Ruel Foundation

About This Cause

I organised and completed a 100km (62miles) sponsored bike ride on the Gold Coast in 3 hours 53mins on the 21st April 2012.

The bike challenge team included Kelly Hunt, Chelsey Mcdonell, Holly Connors, and myself. A big thank you to them for volunteering to join me. Please help us reach our target and make a donation!

We completed this Challenge to raise money for The Ruel Foundation.

The Ruel Foundation provides free medical aid to children with physical deformities. They also run a fifty bed children's crisis centre for small children living in poverty and in life threatening situations such as starvation, physical abuse or abandonment.

In May 2012 I shall be going to the Philippines for 3 weeks to work at The Ruel Foundation Orphanage. In order to take money to the children who desperately need operation's. I shall be working in the crisis centre providing the babies and children with much needed love and care.


For as little as $370 a child can receive corrective surgery for a cleft lip or palate from surgeons in the Philippines and Fiji. Surgeries are done in the child's own nation by local surgeons.

With the poverty level a serious problem in the Philippines, the Ruel Foundation are now seeing a greater number of children being brought to the 'children's crisis centre' (Ruel House) in serious physical and emotional distress. Many small children have been cared for by an older brother or sister. Many are simply abandoned and left to die.

The Ruel Foundation is a fully registered Charitable Trust in New Zealand (CC11212) and the USA (501c3).


I have worked out the total cost of my trip will come to a minimum of AUD$1600 (visa's, flights, departure tax, transport from airport to foundation, travel insurance, food and accommodation)

I am only asking for money towards the flights which cost $800 return, everything else I will pay for myself. The rest of the money raised goes directly to the The Ruel Foundation and will be used for the children’s operations. This is a NON PROFIT charity event.

You will be able to see how much we have raise on this page and I will then provide proof I have given it to the Ruel Foundation. I shall also have a blog/facebook group you can follow along with videos and photos of my trip.


Please help us complete this mission and help the abandoned, neglected and physically deformed children that are less fortunate than ourselves.

Mother Teresa said "We can do no great things, only small things with great love."

Hey I'm Laura 25 from the U.K, I have been travelling for 2 years around Australia, Asia and Fiji. Through my travels I have seem many poverty stricken areas which made me want to help. So I did some research and decided this organisation needs me and needs you. Help me raise the money to give neglected children the love they deserve and help pay for operations they need! All donations big or small are very much appreciated.
