Just one of the many things I had the pleasure of experiencing while trekking across Nepals Himalayas throughout September was seeing the charitable work of Adara.
Just one of the many things I had the pleasure of experiencing while trekking across Nepal's Himalayas throughout September was seeing the charitable work of Adara.
Together with a group of passionate Adara supporters, I visited its project sites, trekked through lush vegetation and walked up more steps than I could possibly count, with the sole purpose of raising funds for their work on the ground in Nepal.
It was a monumental journey of discovery, full of ups and downs - both topographically and emotionally. And one I found more physically and mentally demanding than I could ever have believed possible beforehand.
In fact, had I not met some of the women and children that your donations are helping to support, I would have struggled to keep going.
When my mind and body begged me to stop, it was the memory of their smiles and beautiful greetings of "namaste" that spurred me on and reminded me why I was trekking in the first place.
Huge thanks to everyone who has sponsored me. It was an incredible adventure and I continue to be humbled by your ongoing generosity in supporting Adara's programmes.
