I am Rob van der Aar, embarking on an exhilarating solo kayaking challenge, Paddle for Egypt 2024. This thrilling adventure not only fulfills my passion for the extraordinary but also serves as a powerful platform to create a positive impact by rallying support and awareness for two vital charitable causes: SOS Children's Villages Egypt and the Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation.
SOS Children's Villages Egypt is at the forefront of providing care and assistance to vulnerable children and families in Egypt. Their unwavering commitment includes offering secure and nurturing homes, access to education, healthcare, and opportunities for these young souls to flourish. By undertaking Paddle for Egypt 2023, I aspire to play a significant role in advancing the crucial mission of SOS Children's Villages Egypt.
The Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation (MYF), a distinguished Egyptian registered charity NGO, was established in 2008 by luminaries Sir Magdi Yacoub, the late Dr. Ahmed Zewail, and Ambassador Mohamed Shaker. MYF spearheads an extraordinary project, the Aswan Heart Centre (AHC), which has monumental significance for the health and wellbeing of the Egyptian people and operates solely on donations.
My ambitious fundraising goal is set at surpassing $10,000.
Your support is instrumental in turning this vision into reality.
