Namesco's Charity Himalayas Trek
By: MarkJ - 17 December, 2005 (9:39 AM)

Sam Hill, a Software Developer and Futurologist at UK ISP Namesco, is to undertake the ultimate endurance trek up the Himalayas in order to raise vitally needed funds for the charity ActionAid:

Sam has been invited to go on a 10 day trek up high in the Himalayan mountains, starting with a spiritual teaching from the Dali Lama and ending up 10 days and nearly 300 miles later at the end of the Ugr River in the Kangra Valley, departing on the 13th March 2006.

Please help to raise the profile of Sam's trek for this very worth cause and publicise this if you can.

As part of this trip to India, Sam will also be spending a day in Delhi helping an ActionAid project to rescue Street Children. These children, as the name itself suggests, are children for whom the street, more than their family has become their real home, a situation in which there is no protection, supervision or direction from responsible adults; where they suffer from destitution, neglect, abuse, exploitation and extreme poverty.

All the costs for Sam to go on this trip have been met by donors; therefore every single penny raised in sponsorship will go directly to ActionAid to help them to reduce and hopefully one-day eradicate world poverty. You can keep track of Sam's progress - and while the trek is being undertaken keep up-to-date with Live Updates, read all about the dangers he faces, see where Sam is going and most importantly, SPONSOR Sam online at: http://www.samgoeswalkies.com .

Every single penny pledged helps, for example:

- 15 pounds would buy three basic HIV medical kits.

- 80 pounds would feed a child in a shelter in India for a year.

- 100 pounds could run a medical centre for 5 days - treating over 100 people in Gujarat.

- 250 pounds would pay the annual salary of a teacher in an access centre in Ethiopia.

Unfortunately delays on our e-mail server have meant that we didnít receive the above press release until this morning, so our apology for the delay in covering it.
