On the 31st of May 2018, I’ve set myself a challenge to hike the highest mountain in Vietnam (Mt Fansipan). This challenge is help to raise money for those affected by Leprosy disease, mainly the elderly and children that live day-to-day in poverty.
Mt Fansipan is located in Sapa, Northern Vietnam with the elevation of 3,143m (10,312ft). The hike will be 26km return that will take roughly 10-11 hours. I chose this mountain because Vietnam is the land of my birthplace.
Also known as Hansen’s Disease, Leprosy Disease is a long-term infection that causes severe disfiguring skin sores and nerve damage in the limbs and skin around the body. A lot of Leprosy patients faced the threat of amputation of limbs. This is mentally & physically debilitating as they are unable to work, which leads long term poverty.
My sister and I will be travelling to multiple cities in Vietnam to hand deliver packages of daily necessities which include rice, noodles, dried fish, sugar, salt, fish sauce and cooking oil etc to those affected by Leprosy disease and poverty.
100% of the money raised will be donated!!! Your donation big or small will make a huge difference in their lives. As Mother Theresa said, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one”.
Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to know more on my mobile or DM me via Facebook. ☺
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
