EVEREST BASE CAMP CHALLENGE photo

Over the years you have supported us in all of our challenges, be it marathons, cycle rides or mountain climbing, for numerous good charities, and we thank you for your support. 

They have been mainly Leaukaemia related but this time, we have chosen a Charity that supports orphans in Nepal. Our Sansar.  This is because Mina and I are undertaking the climb to Mount Everest Base Camp over three weeks from April 7th 2014. We will ascend to an altitude of in excess of 18,000 feet (5550 metres) before descending. We have been training the last three months, but one can never train for AMS, Altitude Mountain Sickness. Hopefully this will not hinder us in our quest!

Mina is undertaking cross training in the gym while I prefer running. Both of us do trekking and long walks with a bit of cycling too. 

Our Sansar have purchased a home in Birgunj, Nepal and have adopted 9 orphans who they will bring up and educate and one day make ready for the outside world. They also train teachers in Nepal to bring education standards up. Further, they have a buy a buffalo campaign as a buffalo can provide 15 litres of milk a day, which can feed the orphans.

Our Sansar (oursansar.org) is registered in the U.K. as a charity and all their staff work on a voluntary basis.

Once again, thank you for your time and support.
