This evening the Miss World Guyana Pageant Organization will host ‘Runway to Sanya’, the first of three fundraising events in aid of sending Guyana’s Miss World representative Ambika Ramraj to the international leg of the pageant set for December 8, in Sanya, China.
Since her win on May 25, Ambika has been using her time to highlight the positive effects of sports on persons’ mental health. She especially targeted the youths with the hope of reducing the harmful effects of childhood trauma. She recently ended her ‘Healthy Wholly’ Beauty with a Purpose Project. The objective of the project is to deal with mental health issues owing to childhood injury through the use of sports and physical activities.
The queen is working closely with Guyana Golden Lives Organization under the directorship of founder Marva Langevine who was recently awarded ‘Queens Young Leadership Award’. The organization strives to improve and give new meaning to the lives of sick and underprivileged children and their families in Guyana through numerous mentoring and advancement workshops. Ambika and Marva will collaborate in creating and coordinating a number of sports-related activities and camps to assist children and ensure that they have the opportunity of a positive future.
The second fundraiser will be held at the Classic Banqueting Suite, Upper Tooting in London on October 20. It is being touted as a night of elegance glamour and class and comes with a three course meal at the cost of 35 pounds or 15 pounds which caters only for a dance. The third fundraiser will be a Bon Voyage Meet and Greet Cocktail slated for New York on November 2.
Ambika is set to represent Guyana at the month-long activities at the Miss World Competition in Sanya China which conclude on coronation night December 8.
‘Runway to Sanya’ will take the form of a dinner and fashion show. The event is slated for Parc Rayne. The public is encouraged to support this cause.
