The Sunshine Climb
Everest Base Camp Challenge 2014
in aid of
Christina Noble Children's Foundation
by Séamas Ó Laighléis
On Sunday 19th October 2014 I will commence the Everest Base Camp Challenge to raise money for Christina Noble Children's Foundation. The climb begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (aka "the most dangerous airport in the world" !) and will take approximately 13 days round trip. As part of the trek I will also climb Kala Pattar peak. An outline of the itinerary is set out in the adjoining tab. I will also be accompanied on the climb by two of my closest (and obviously a bit crazy!) friends, Caroline Sheridan (Irish) and her husband Mark Fahy (Australian), who are flying out from Oz for the trek.
Christina Noble Children's Foundation (CNCF) is committed to alleviating child poverty in Vietnam and Mongolia and giving all children the right to a happy and safe childhood. Please take time to visit the Foundation's website to see the amazing work that Christina has been doing for more than two decades in Vietnam and Mongolia.
Why "The Sunshine Climb"?
The children of the Foundation are Christina's "Sunshine Children" and CNCF has many projects which carry this name, eg. Sunshine School, Sunshine House, Sunshine Village. It is an appropriate title as Christina and CNCF have brought sunshine into the lives of so many of the world's most vulnerable and destitute children.
I have spent some time volunteering with the Foundation in both countries and have seen first hand the difference Christina and CNCF have made to the lives of tens of thousands of vulnerable children and their families - often in the most difficult and harsh of circumstances.
