I'm going to make a 10-day tour in Nepal together with my very good friend Nathalie. I'm going to visit 2 projects in Kohalpur and Kapilvastu in Nepal in different stages of completion, initiated and funded by Simavi. I will be able to see first hand how these projects improve the quality of life of the local people. After these visits I will make a 5-day trekking in the mid-range mountains of the Himalayas to Poon Hill (alt. >3.200m). The challenge: raising €3.000 to help fund the projects in Nepal. Help me collect 3.000 euro needed to help Nepal and make a difference for the local people! Thank you for your generosity! P.S. the cost of making the journey to Nepal I will pay for myself of course, so every single euro I raise will be used to help Nepal.
Nature, Travel, Hiking... very important elements of my life. Recently I started realizing that helping others in need is not only a responsibility of governments and big organizations, It is a responsibility of us all and I want to take action and make a difference. Joining the Hike For Health brings all of the above together. In order to make a trekking in the Himalayas, I will need to raise funds that will be put to good use in Nepal. Clean drinking water and better sanitation, e.g. WC's and sewage systems, will help improve the health of local villagers, especially new-born and young mothers by reducing infection risks of illnesses like cholera, typhoid, hepatitis. And last, but not least: sharing the experiences of raising funds and getting in shape to be able to make that selfie on Poon Hill together with Nathalie makes it all the more special to me. We're in this together!
