I will be part of a team from the UK who will trek up into the Himalayas to a peak at a height of 4997m. The trek will last 6 days and I know from my experience of climbing Kilimanjaro that we will be challenged by the altitude from 3000m up.

This trek was planned long before the outbreak of the war in Ukriane, but now with such huge needs on our doorstep in Europe, having seen for myself the needs in Poland, I will be fundraising for both Nepal and OM's work in Ukraine and with refugees. 

The prevalence of AIDS/HIV in Nepal is twice as high as the UK and many people there have found it hard to know how to live with the disease. OM's AIDSLink programme gives real hope to those who are struggling with the disease and provides practical and spiritual support as well as training and raising awareness in the community.
Please give generously to support these very valuable projects.
