Rich & Pete are going to walk over 100 miles to raise money for the Antivenom Swazi Foundation.

The walk will leave Caernarfon on 14th July and follow the Llyn Peninsular coastal path for around 95 miles and then back to Caernarfon over 4-5 days (~110 miles in total).

Many of you are aware of the work that Antivenom Swazi does, but for those who dont, here is a brief outline. More info can be found at www.antivenomswazi.org
or on the Facebook page Swaziland Snake Bite Victims.

Antivenom Swazi Foundation aims to raise funds to treat snake bite victims in Swaziland. Many of the bite victims are children and the lack of available antivenom often results in horrific injuries and/or death.
Antivenom is expensive, even by western standards. One vial of antivenom costs around £45 & it takes around 5 vials to treat someone who has been bitten by a black mamba.

Antivenom Swazi Foundation founders, Thea Litschka-Koen and Clifton Koen hope to establish an antivenom bank that can provide free antivenoms to snake bite victims throughout the country, and plans to maintain emergency stocks in two locations so that antivenom can reach any patient who needs it by road within 2 hours. They are involved in public education, teaching rural people to avoid snake bites and about the importance of seeking medical attention quickly, rather than delaying care i.e. seeking out local 'Witch Doctors'.

Check out some of the photos on the facebook page (warning they are graphic!) or visit their website to see why your donations are much needed.

Thanks!
